While the I-Codes are generally adopted throughout the United States, most states and local governments modify them to their regional relevance. Design firms are challenged with ensuring compliance to codes because they are unfamiliar with the local codes and ordinances. Code deficiencies in the design can lead to delayed permitting and costly re-designs.
What is Code Consulting?
Bureau Veritas will assign an experienced, licensed and certified plans examiner to research the local codes and ordinances and provide code reviews during the design of the project.
What are the key benefits?
Specializing in the plan review and inspection of buildings and their Plumbing, Mechanical, Energy, Electrical, and Fire Suppression and Alarm Systems, Bureau Veritas assists many clients in complying with various interpretations of the fire and life safety codes. By consulting with the Architect of Record as early as possible in the design phase, Bureau Veritas can significantly reduce the number of code conflicts on the final drawings.
Additionally, consulting with a code expert during the design phase reduces the time it takes to obtain a permit and costs associated with re-designs and re-submittals.
