Approved as Noted gives the plans examiner the ability to mark up minor items on construction drawings. Items should fall into the following criteria:
Below is a limited list of items that may benefit from Approved as Noted:
The intention is for Interactive Review to reduce the number of review cycles needed during a review by encouraging communication between the reviewer and the designer of record during the first review cycle. Interactive Review will be used if Approved as Noted can not address the issues. The expectation is this communication will clarify questions and allow a response to correct the code issue(s) at hand. Utilization of Interactive Review will reduce the overall time to obtain an approved set of drawings. This initiative will apply to projects that typically take 1 – 8 hours of review.
The design professionals will be available by phone, fax, email or in person to participate in this program. Once contacted regarding a review, the design professional will respond within 48 hours (2 business days) or the review will be disapproved and the drawings returned. The plans examiners will have the comments to the designers no later than 3:00 pm and the designers will respond no later than 3:00 pm 2 business days later. The lead designer will provide to Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement a list of designers and their contact information (phone, fax, email) and the contact information of their alternatives, as needed, in an electronic form (ie, Word document) and on the Appendix B.
