Plan Examination is in the Building and Infrastructure Division of Hamilton County Planning and Development Department and consists of Master Plans Examiners who are Architects and Engineers, registered in the State of Ohio. They review the construction documents and permit applications for commercial and residential projects. This review is performed to ensure that the proposed design complies with the provisions of the applicable building codes.
Commercial applications are examined for compliance with the 2011 Ohio Building Code and all associated codes as adopted by the state of Ohio along with the most current updates.
Residential applications are examined for compliance with the 2006 Residential Code of Ohio and the 2007 Hamilton County Building Code.
If an application does not meet the minimum requirements of the building codes, the plan examiner sends the applicant a letter or a checklist with a request for additional information and/or correction(s) to be made to the documents or drawings. The applicant is responsible for submitting corrected documents to the plan examiner for re-review. Revisions are examined on Tuesdays and Fridays only.
When the plan examiner determines that the documents comply with the code, they endorse them as "Approved" and forward them to the permit specialists, who then communicate with the applicant with further instructions.
