About Us

The International Code Council (ICC)…The publisher of the I-Codes

From high-rise commercial buildings and retail facilities to residential developments, schools,
hospitals and civic institutions, no other plan review service has as much expertise in ALL the
International Codes® (I-Codes®) as the code experts at ICC Plan Review Services.

No plan review is too complex or too large for the code experts of ICC’s Plan Review Services.
That’s why state and local government agencies, architects and building professionals turn to ICC
for the most accurate code analysis in the country.

Every plan review is prepared by licensed and ICC-certified engineers and architects who understand
the ICC International and legacy model codes better than any other plan review service in the
building industry.

Dedicated to delivering the highest quality plan reviews in the industry, ICC Plan Review Services

Limited-Scope Plan Review/Technical Consulting Services
In addition to Plan Review Services, ICC also offers Technical Consulting. Whenever questions arise
related to the technical aspects of the ICC International Codes or other related code issues, ICC’s
professional staff is available to provide necessary technical expertise including evaluations of
specific code topics as applied to a project, or special studies of particular building components,
characteristics or applications. This service is billed at an hourly rate of $150 per hour for ICC
Members and $200 per hour for non-members. The minimum fee is one (1) hour.

Preliminary Plan Review Services
Designed to offer critical information for further plan development, a Preliminary Plan Review is
performed when construction documents are still in the initial stages of development. This review is
ideal for fast-track projects or foundation permit requests where a complete set of building plans and
specifications are not available. This service includes the review of initial design code compliance
including use and occupancy classification, type of construction, height and area calculations, means
of egress, fire-resistance construction requirements and foundation design.

Complete Plan Review Services
With this service, plan reviewers perform a comprehensive review of design drawings and specifications
to the disciplines requested. These include:

  • Detailed checklist of code compliance and violations
  • Follow-up consultations throughout construction
  • One complimentary re-review of reissued plans

Getting Started is As Easy As 1-2-3

Send the required plans, specifications and other design documents along with an authorization for ICC
to perform the plan.

Within 15 to 20 working days, ICC will respond with a comprehensive plan review report and checklist.

If necessary, send the revised drawings with resolutions to the code deficiencies to ICC for a
complimentary re-review.

Fee Schedule Form
In addition to being the most detailed and precise in the industry, ICC Plan Reviews are
competitively priced. Fees are based on the estimated construction value in accordance with the
Building Valuation Data. To view current Building Valuation Data, visit https://www.iccsafe.org/products-and-services/i-codes/code-development-process/building-valuation-data/. For an
