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 for further information or just to discuss your needs.

Thank you,

Jeff Remas

  • Attaching Stop Work Notice

    Ok this should be a interesting response. What method by which do you attach Stop Work Notice to a building/structure. For example; duct tape, scotch tape, glue gun, glue stick, paper clip, nail gun, staple gun, 6d cooler, nail by hammer, etc. The question has been rasied about danage to the structure, glue left behind by tape, holes in the wall or structure. Looking for everyone's thoughts or current practices. Thanks everyone!

    How about a 10" Gutter Nail to the front door? (yes, I've seen it done.)

      Yeah but I would be a real weenie by using a rail road spike or any one of those spikes used on those wooden docks used in Astoria. :D

      Howdy Terre. Going to have fun on Thursday classes going over Residential Building Codes with our local Building Inspector in Astoria. (Building Inspector not the official Building Official). Terre, you'll know who I'm talking about.

        We use either staples or clear packing tape. It really depends on the project and the surface the placard will be attached to. If the contractor is present, the stop work order is also accompanied by a uniformed police officer to keep the peace. We try not to post them whenever possible.

 The flag is up!

              On a structure that may get comments about the way we attach the notice we try to find someplace to slide the notice so that it is in a location noticable. Take a picture of it.

              Now if it's on a structure where you couldn't tell or it's not going to damage anything, we will staple it but we still take a picture.

                Depends on the stage of construction. Staple if in the framing or non-finished drywall stage. Taped on a window if installed, glass is pretty easy to clean.

                  Face to face with my business card I find works the best or if no one is on site I staple the stop work order with my business card with a desk stapler and take a photo.

                    Duct tape. I try to find a spot where it will not damage the project, like the chain link gate at the last one(reroof). We have high winds here, usually daily, and things have a tendency to fly away if not taped securely.

                      Well the back side of ours has the same stuff as peal and stick glue. It is divided off in small sections(6-7) so that it can be applied. Mostly I try to find a window on the door or next to it to apply it too. Depending on how I feel depends on how many strips I pull off. Usually one will hold and in some cases I'll apply a fail sticker to the ends depending on if the wind blows.

                      Also there's a door tag that gets attached to the door handle or if screen door telling them what needs to be done. (apply for permit, etc...)

                      Mostly there is a good chance the owner/contractor is around and a face-to-face with the business card and door tag gets the job done.

                      Once back in the office it's gets entered as a code case and letter sent to registered owner the same day. Follow-up depends on what happens after that.

                        We use a Hilti gun and fire it into the foundation or nail it through the siding.;)

                          Depends on what level of Pi** off I am in! Should never have to issue a stop work order. But sometimes one must.

                            Attach it however you want to.. if the contractor or owner wants to take it down.. they will.
                            some days are just that.. :banghd

                              Mostly small pieces of duct tape. Have been known to use staple gun. If using a 'peel-and-stick', I try to only use the corners... unless I'm pi$$ed off, then they get the whole thing peeled off!
                              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming, "Wow, what a ride!!!"
