Plan Review

Traditions Fire Consulting provides professional third party plan reviews for all fire protection and building code required fire and life safety systems. We review the plans and all associated documentation for compliance with the locally adopted codes, standards, and ordinances for the jurisdiction the project is to be constructed.

Municipalities and fire departments can contract Traditions Fire Consulting with all fees and plan submissions being directly sent to us. The municipality and/or fire department will receive stamped plans and all comments from the plan review. An open line of communication will be provided between the municipality/fire department and Traditions Fire Consulting. Ultimately, the municipality and/or fire department will receive code compliant plans pertaining to the fire protection and life safety systems of the building without any overhead. Municipalities and/or fire departments may elect to collect all fees pertaining to the project and pay Traditions Fire Consulting on a pre-arranged and agreed upon basis.

Plan Reviews will be completed in 5 to 10 business days. Our plan review fees are a set fee so contractors and municipalities have up front knowledge of what the project will cost. There are no re-submittal fees. Our goal is to encourage compliance through open communication at the beginning of the project. Contractors are encouraged to contact us with questions regarding the plan submittal process and any special requirements of the local jurisdiction.

A rush plan review service is available and can be guaranteed, depending on the size and complexity of the system, in 2 to 3 business days.
