Why Should I Get My Plans Revised by a Private Provider?

Once construction documents are drawn by the respective design professional (for example, a registered architect or structural engineer) they must adhere to the Florida Building Code (FBC). Reviewing your plans and providing revisions in the necessary areas ensures that you will receive a permit without delay or pushback from the City of Jacksonville.  

As a private provider, we will provide revisions of energy calculations, product approval sheets, asbestos reports, NOC, NTBO, and permit application paperwork along with plan revisions.

We review and suggest revisions to all documents per project that are necessary to have permits issued! 



Both building departments and private providers will review your plans and additional required documents, to note items that are not in FBC compliance. Plan review is completed by appropriate licensed examiners and the plans will have to be revised by the design professional. 

Before submitting your plans to the City of Jacksonville, it is imperative that a complete permit package is sent preventing any pushback, thus preventing you from receiving a permit. Revisions through a private provider are crucial for fast progressions and quick submittal. 


While building departments offer the review process, Legacy guarantees a smoother process as we prevent additional comments or revisions from the jurisdiction after the permit submittal process has begun. 

As a private provider, we offer clear and concise guidance on implementing revisions, saving you time and money. 

At Legacy, two stages are standard. The first is to make initial comments and the second is to approve the revisions made to satisfy the comments from the first review. On the other hand, building departments may not be as communicative and may make further comments, thus prolonging the time it takes for you to get your permit.

The benefit of using a private provider is that we will help you achieve a final set of plans and prepare for permit submittal and approval, much sooner than the jurisdiction. With our reliable scheduling contacts, you will always have access to our department, whether you have questions or need guidance.
