Plan Review Status (Enter designer customer
ID to see status of scheduled plan review.)
Please see the Recent Announcements section below for information on improvements to the plan review
scheduling and availability process.
Please note: The
dates listed should be used as an estimate of plan review availability by
program. Your actual scheduled plan review date will be communicated to you upon
review of your plan/project specifics. Industry Services makes every attempt to
schedule the review as close to the desired review date as possible. If the
balance of workload between plan review offices or availability of plan
reviewers does not allow scheduling in the location specifically requested, a
reviewer in another office may be assigned.
The Availability Calendar pulls the next
available review date with a 2-hour duration with the exception of Commercial
Buildings with a 6-hour duration of time. Plan reviews that have estimated hours
of less time may be scheduled sooner.
Building submitters please note: Normally the same reviewer is assigned to
subsequent components after the initial approval. The next available date in the
table may not be applicable in these situations.
Private sewage submitters please note: Plans are not
scheduled in advance of arrival. Plans are scheduled as they arrive in each
Based on feedback that we have received from our stakeholders
and the increasing use of electronic plan review we are in the process of making
some changes to our plan entry process. There will be two main phases to this
Above is the chart that you will see when you go to our website
and look for a “next available date.” Our philosophy going forward is to
provide each submitter with the earliest available date.
A Couple Points of Interest
- If you prefer to mail or hand deliver
unscheduled plans to a DSPS office, plan entry staff will schedule a review for
the first available date State wide and mail them to the assigned review office
at no charge to you. Scheduled plans sent to the wrong review office may be
subject to a $30 shipping and handling fee.
- If you prefer to mail your
own plans, you will be given the address of the office your plan was scheduled
- Components will still be required to be matched up with building
reviewer that conducted the original review.
- If you do not want the next
available date, but would prefer to schedule further out, that service is
still in place.
We are working with our
IT staff to make the necessary changes with the web scheduler. We are keeping
the old system live as changes are made to reflect this “next available date”
strategy. Please bear with us as we make these enhancements.
Our plan entry staff will
always be available to help you with your scheduling needs. If you have
questions, problems, or concerns please feel free to contact our staff at
608-266-2112, press 4 for Industry Services Plan Review, and 1 for scheduling.
Again, our staff is prepared to help you regardless of your location.
Thank you for your input,
your ideas, and your support.
