What is the process of a plan review?

A plan review application must be completed and submitted along with 1 sets of drawings, no bigger then 11x17 and an electronic set uploaded to the portal (if commercial they must be sealed and 1 full sized set with an electronic set), and an energy report for electrical and mechanical plans. The plan review normally takes up to 2 week for each trade. A permit will not be issued until the plan review has been completed, approved, and the permit has been paid for. 

Commercial projects need to have a fire department plan review if your project is in East Bay or Acme townships you will need to contact Grand Traverse Metro Fire. Projects in City of Traverse City need to contact Traverse City Fire Department. Projects in Blair township need to contact Blair Township Fire Department.
