    Building Codes and the Contractor

    Building Codes and the Contractor By Ronald L. Geren, AIA, CSI, CCS, CCCA, SCIP The process of building has been around for a long time as made evident through the many ancient structures and archeological sites around the world. During those early ages, the roles of designer and constructor were rolled up into a single person: the “master-builder.” The first known architect-builder was Imhotep, who oversaw the design and construction of the mortuary complex for Zoser at Saqqara, Egypt, around 2723 BC. From there, the role of master-builder would continue to grow, not only in responsibility, but also in stature. But in Babylon, the ruler Hammurabi (1795-1750 BC) placed a minor restriction on the builders of the time by setting in place a rudimentary building code that held the builder responsible for poor construction. For the first time in recorded history builders had an artificial limitation placed upon them. During the Renaissance (145...

Plan Review Services

Advanced Code Group (ACG) has been performing plan review services for municipalities, architectural firms, third-party agencies, contractors and code officials for over 10 years with great success and response. We would be happy to assist you with your I-Code plan review needs, whether on a limited or full time basis. Plan review is performed by several experienced inspectors, certified as plan reviewers in different disciplines. We offer expedited plan review services electronically. This has been a well received process that eliminates reprinting of drawings. At the end of plan review, you have the option to accept an electronic stamp on the plans or submit the final, approved drawings for traditional stamping with return via FedEx. Why print, submit then print changes and submit again when this can be done just once?

We will always do our best to work within your budget and allotted timeframe. Feel free to contact our office at 1-877-223-4462 or email us at codes@inspectpa.com for further information or just to discuss your needs.

Thank you,

Jeff Remas
