What is a Phased Plan Approval?

To meet tight construction schedules, it can be beneficial for specific certain projects to divide the work into phases before the full plan review is completed.

A phased approval allows you to submit your construction plans for a new building in multiple phases instead of offering a complete set of plans at once. For example, some states in the US allow Phased Plan Approvals. 

The building permit can be issued until a specific process phase, such as foundations and footings, and the following phases are applied separately and approved later. 

Each later phase needs a separate submission of application and plans, a review, approval, or a permit. 

The phased permit is supplemental to the primary building permit, i.e., numbering is a revision of the prior building permit. 

The phased plan approval will be initiated from the building permit when the project is in the Work and Construction phase in Cloudpermit. The applicant provides the required parties to the application and attachments. After the applicant has signed off and paid on the phased plan approval, it is ready to be submitted to the local government authority for further review and approval.
