  • Flatten layers and  deselect font embedment, then save at designed drawing size and scale, at 300 dpi
  • Turn off color, unless you intend to print the final approved drawings in color
  • Please help us navigate your plans by creating bookmarks identifying each sheet.
  • All documents, including the application package, and any specs or cut sheets must saved as a single file.  The only exception is for very large submittals, (such as one's you'd submit as separate bound sets).
  • Large sets must be saved as separate files for each trade disciplines, such that no one file exceeds 50 MB size.

Step 2 - Prepare appropriate application and code note forms

  • Download the appropriate documents per the choices offered below.
  • Have them signed by the applicant and the designer as indicated on the forms.
  • After you have filled out and signed the forms, make sure you flatten the them (combine all layers into one) and save them as such. Otherwise you will end up sending us blank forms.
  • Include signed copies in the the digital file you prepared, organized to be the first documents in the plan submittal package.
