The full review process is a 2-part review process in which the licensee and architect submit a set of preliminary plans for first submission. The Division conducts a detailed review of the preliminary plans and sends review comments to the licensee and architect. The licensee and architect are expected to review and incorporate the Division's preliminary plan review comments into the final plans and submit a set of final construction plans. The Division conducts a detailed review of the final construction plans before plan approval is issued.
The full plan review process is a time intensive process, so licensees are encouraged to use the self-certification and abbreviated review processes whenever possible. The Department maintains the right to conduct a full plan review on any project submission. Circumstances when the Department conducts a full review of plans include, but are not limited to, one of the following:
Compliance with licensure requirements must be verified and documented within a given project area. Existing licensed conditions outside of the project area will remain acceptable. However, when bed complements are increased, facilities are expected to ensure compliance with square footage minimums and functional area requirements for all functional spaces that are required to support the additional beds.
Construction must not begin until the facility receives the Department's written plan approval of final construction plans.
