What is a resubmittal?
Resubmittals occur before a permit is issued when your plans/drawings need to be amended and resubmitted during the plan review process in order to demonstrate that the project meets city codes.
Resubmittals are uploaded as attachments to the existing project log record in e-permits.
What are Modified Drawings?
Once a permit has been approved and issued, the project must be built to those approved plans. If changes are needed to the approved plans during construction, the changes must be reviewed and permitted. The changed documents and drawings submitted for review after initial permits were issued are called modified drawings.
Modified drawings are submitted as a new permit application in e-permits. Choose "building log" when prompted to select a permit type.
What is an Administrative Modification?
Administrative modification requests are a way for applicants to request an alternative, but equivalent means of complying with specific code language. The applicant must provide alternative, equivalent designs/measures that meet the intent of the original code language. If approved, an "admin mod" only applies to a specific instance (project and tenant) and is not considered a precedent for other projects. Decisions to deny may be appealed to the Building Code Board of Appeals.
Administrative modifications are submitted as a new permit application in e-permits. Choose "administrative modification" when prompted to select a permit type.
