    Hello Mike,

    Here’s the update I promised for this PASS project.

    The second review when very smooth and resulted with one remaining item requested by the City on March 8, 2018.  Evidently there was a little confusion with our suggested format for the Green Code Checklist.  Plan sheets that included the revised checklists were resubmitted to the City on March 14, 2018 and approved for issuance the same day.

    All in all, the project was submitted on January 17, 2018 and ready to issue on March 14, 2018.  That’s a total of 38 business days.  The plans were under City review for less than 14 of those days.

    I would say both parties performed well on this one.

    Thanks,

     Mike,

    This project, like many Kaiser projects, was highly detailed.  The first review was started 3 business days after its submittal and took 6 business days to complete.  Remember, the City has combination plans examiners, who review each project for all disciplines.

    Our plans examiner reports that the design documents met the standards expected for a PASS project, which resulted in a marked reduction in the number of plan review comments likely for a project of this level.

    The design team is working on the issues and should resubmit soon.

    I’ll let you know how the recheck went, once complete.

    Thanks,
