Building Safety: Plan Review, Permits and Inspections

Building Safety reviews plans, issues permits, and conducts building inspections for development projects.

Pre-Technical Review

The City of Chandler Pre-technical Review is now required for any proposed subdivision, site plan development, new building or substantial building addition. This process is free of charge.

Electronic Plan Review

The City now offers an electronic plan review for all projects. Please click on the links below for instructions on electronic submittals.



Walk-In Plan Review

Electronic submittal of plans is recommended, however, a "walk-in" plan review service is offered Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for residential and small commercial projects. Most residential additions and renovations may be reviewed using this service along with a limited number of minor-scale commercial projects. Whether any particular project may be reviewed using our walk-in service will be determined by the plan reviewer on duty.
