Small group of people at table with plans

A Design Consultation is a voluntary design conference with plan review staff (typically architectural/life safety examiners, unless other disciplines are requested) to discuss preliminary/schematic design drawings for commercial and residential projects prior to preparation of final construction documents (working drawings, specifications, etc.). It is intended primarily for discussing architectural designs; however, preliminary consultations may be arranged for engineering systems designs. Predesign consultations are virtual and free. If you have a question about your project and do not need a predesign consultation, call 240-777-0311 for assistance. 

Design consultations are not for discussing comments resulting from the plan review permit process. Please contact the plans examiner who provided the comments to discuss plan review comments.
