What is the Peer Review Program?

DPIE’s Peer Review Program, a third-party plan review program, allows owners and applicants to select DPIE certified peer reviewers at their own cost to expedite the plan review process, instead of County staff. Using peer reviewers can reduce the plan review and approval time by up to 50 percent. Peer reviewers may be retained for various types of building and site development projects. See the Third-Party Plan Review Program Manual for Buildings for additional information.
