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,

  • Easy electrical question

    Hello guys, in our state (washington), all of the electrical permitting and inspections are handled through the State, so I am not totally familiar with the NEC.

    Is there a requirement for lighting at exterior doors?
    If so, can you point me to the NEC.

    Thanks.

    We are discussing accessory structures that have no wiring or lighting (storage barn type things).

    We don't have any IRC sections that would require it, but we are also not supposed to approved things in violation of other ordinances.

    Thanks.

    This help?

    210.70(2) Additional Locations. Additional lighting outlets shall be installed in accordance with (A)(2)(a), (A)(2)(b), and (A)(2)(c).

    (a) At least one wall switch–controlled lighting outlet shall be installed in hallways, stairways, attached garages, and detached garages with electric power.
    (b) For dwelling units, attached garages, and detached garages with electric power, at least one wall switch–controlled lighting outlet shall be installed to provide illumination on the exterior side of outdoor entrances or exits with grade level access. A vehicle door in a garage shall not be considered as an outdoor entrance or exit.
    (c) Where one or more lighting outlet(s) are installed for interior stairways, there shall be a wall switch at each floor level, and landing level that includes an entryway, to control the lighting outlet(s) where the stairway between floor levels has six risers or more.
    Quotes are from the 08 NEC unless otherwise noted.

      Thank you very much.

      So detached garage with no power, doesn't need lighting outside the door, assuming there are no stairs.

      If I am reading that correctly.

        Also in the 2009 IRC section R3903.3 states the same as the NEC

          Yes, you are reading it correctly. Except for the stairs portion as you have no power to the garage thus no illumination is required stairs or not.
