Joint Task Force
Announces the Publication of
A Guide to Creating Building Code Compliant Drawings
The BOAF/AIA-Florida/FES Task Force is proud to announce the publication of a guide for design professionals and plans examiners, created to identify all of the code required information that must be included in drawings submitted for permitting.
The Guide provides a checklist that identifies all of the information required by the 2010 Florida Building Code to be checked during plan review. Each item in the checklist has a code section reference where the relevant code requirements are located, and a space where the design professional can enter a page number(s) where the information can be found in the drawing set.
The Guide recommends that the checklist be included in the drawing set as a "Government Page" in addition to the drawing index. When used, the design professional will know that all of the required information has been provided, and the plans examiner will know where the information is located.
The Guide has four parts, including:
A Building Official's Guide to the Professional Practice of Architects & Engineers in Florida
