Building Inspection


The Electronic Plan Review System (EPRS) came online in May 2014 to allow efficient plan review and processing of electronic construction document files for building permit issue, instead of handling heavy rolls of paper drawings.  The main advantage of electronic plan review over manually reviewing paper plans is allowing staff of different disciplines to review the same set of plans concurrently, thereby reducing processing times by over 50%.  This saves our customers a significant amount of money in printing costs and shortens wait times for receiving building permits.
