Permit set or approval sets are the drawings, models and other presentations that are made by a seller to the buyer so that they approve of the proposal. Permit sets are made for buyer approval as well as government approval of a project. We at Arcengine, know how to create permit sets that will result in approvals. We create elevations, frame drawings, sections of the building and so much more to help our clients get approval on their project. Our team of designers uses various software to build the plan set and do so in the shortest turnaround time.

Our team of experts create permit sets after meeting the client and conducting a site survey. Designs are also created considering the client’s wishes and the rules of the state/country. We take an approach wherein we travel to balance the wishes of the client with the rules set by the province to create designs that are extraordinary yet permissible. Permit sets are created with a special focus on the understandability of the project on both sides.

Permit Sets at Arcengine

Based on the location of the project a number of plans sets or a combination of plan sets need to be submitted by a developer in order to get all the permissions. Following are the permit sets that we create for our clients and help them manage the otherwise tricky process of getting permission. These permit sets are also designed for buyers’ perusal.

Architectural Plan Sets

Architectural plan set is the set that displays the aesthetics and layout of a project and is very crucial when it comes to getting permission from a prospective client or the city. This plan includes details like site plan, elevations, floor plans, material schedules, wall components, sections and details and structural calculations.

Structural Plan Sets

Structural plan set is usually made and submitted at the time of submission of architectural plan set. This drawing focuses on the overall engineering of a project. This plan includes information about beams, columns and slabs, floor, ceiling and wall components, connections and anchorage structural calculations.

MEP Permit Set

MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) set is very crucial for this procedure. Every building proposal has to show its MEP set through specific drawings and plans. These are reviewed by various departments when it comes to government approval.
Mechanical permit sets include the information related to cooling, heating, smoke control, kitchen equipment, duct layout and may also include calculations related to energy use.
Electrical permit set reviews all the electrical details of the proposed project. They include switches, lights, transformers, outlets, switch gears, etc.

Civil Permit Set

Civil permit sets are meant to specify the exteriors of a project and are needed when seeing approval for new construction or modifications. Civil plans are compulsory for a successful public works review. Civil permit sets include information related to landscaping, drainage, grading, utilities and erosion control.
