Project Final Approval/Close-Out

Expected Submission Review Time is 75 days (More about our timeline)

What does this mean for my project? For planning purposes it’s important to understand that this estimate of review time is not the time it takes to review an entire project or receive a facility license.  A “submission” means a distinct set of information (typically plans, specifications, programs, etc.) given to construction review to analyze for compliance with state rules. After a submission is reviewed, there will often be comments that must be responded to and drawings that must be revised. After your design team revises plans and responds to comments, they submit those revisions as a new "submission." A project will often take several submissions to complete.

The number above is a rough estimate for an average submission. Submissions for larger projects will take longer. The construction review program experiences significant shifts in workload and bandwidth, so it’s always best to contact your assigned plan reviewer to get a more accurate read on how long a particular review may take.

Project Final Approval/Close-Out

To receive final approval for each project a Notification of Completion form must be submitted. You may submit the online notification of completion when all of the following have been completed:

  • All project comments approved
  • Construction has been completed (not applicable for: Change of Use, Finishes Only or Temporary Worker Housing projects)
  • Local building department approval has been issued (if applicable)
    • Certificate of Occupancy (CofO) or
    • Final/Signed-off Building Permit.

The online notification of completion will ask you to provide:

  • Approximate final cost;
  • Copy of Certificate of Occupancy or building permit; and
  • 8.5-by-11-inch floor plan(s) showing work area.

Once the form has been submitted and processed the Construction Review Services portion of the project is complete. Please be sure to record your date of completion and project number as you may be required to provide this information on your license renewal.
