State Fire Marshal’s Office rolls out electronic plans review

 

Effort to reduce costs for architects, engineers

NASHVILLE – The State Fire Marshal’s Office’s (SFMO) process for reviewing architects’ and engineers’ drawings for compliance with construction safety codes has just gotten easier and less expensive, with the implementation of an online portal application.

The new electronic plans review system allows for plans, documents and review fees to be submitted over the Internet. The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance’s SFMO enforces fire and building construction safety codes for certain types of buildings. For these occupancies, an architect’s or engineer’s design drawings are submitted for review and approval by the State before construction begins.

“This new portal means that our plans-review office is essentially open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for document submission and fee payment,” says Commerce and Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Leslie A. Newman, “including payment by e-check. Building plans involve very large files, and having them in our office as electronic documents will make it much easier to access, store and archive these plans. As documents are reviewed and any needed re-submittals are made, the time and money savings for construction projects will be significant. Upcoming phases of this project will provide additional automation and time accountability regarding a project’s status.” «Read the rest of this article»
