ePlans offers an enormous benefit to the design professional community, clients and citizens. Unlike the current paper system, e-plans allows for several cost and time saving efficiencies, including:

  • Submission of plans electronically, from the convenience of your office, 24 hours, 7 days a week

  • Simultaneous review of the plans by all professional and trade disciplines

  • City reviewer mark-ups are made on a separate layer of the plans to provide correction, direction, and clarity

  • Re-submission of corrected plans electronically from the convenience of your office
