Speed and a design team in synch with local building processes are invaluable to a development project on a timetable. For qualifying projects, the City of San José offers an expedited plan review that facilitates such efficiency and consensus. Applicants pay a 50% surcharge over the regular plan review fee, listed in San José’s Building Fee Schedule . Benefits include:
One Start Permit Process
Expedited plan review brings the applicant’s design professionals together with the City’s full development services team, which is comprised of expert staff from Planning, Building, Fire Prevention, and Public Works departments. This full intersection enables on-the-spot creative resolution of questions and issues concerning the project’s design and compliance.
Coordinated Inspection Services
Expedited plan review includes coordination for the efficient scheduling of project inspections.
Industrial projects, including high tech offices, qualify for reduced construction taxes. For all qualifying applicants, project phasing and payment options may be available.
Preliminary Design Review Assistance
Upon request, we provide preliminary review meetings for design consultants to discuss code and process issues specific to your project.
Unlimited Review Scope
There are no limits to size or complexity for qualifying projects.
