Typically an applicant can make an appointment to submit their plans and application to the Bureau of Engineering. They will need to provide civil drawings, soil reports, fault study reports, Surface Water Intake Protection Program (SWIPP) reports, and/or any other required material. If a jurisdiction permits, we recommend submitting concurrently to the BOE and other building departments. Generally, BOE approval takes longer than other building departments due to its complexity. Depending on the scale of the project and the jurisdiction that you’re in, it is generally wise to budget for several months for the initial review process with the BOE.
