Drawing Checklist

I recently worked on a project that needed a building consent. I thought that I had checked through everything that was needed. What I really needed was a checklist for each drawing, but I didn’t have one. Don’t worry! We are in the process of developing a checklist now, and I came across this document:
Guide to applying for a building consent (residential buildings)
It has a checklist for each drawing. For example, on page 20 is a checklist for a Site Plan. This is a great start for creating your own office checklists.


  1. This is a very interesting post. It should be standard everywhere to have this requirement in order to have better drawings and not waste time in the permitting process. I’ll save it for my reference in the future. I did not see it at the time as Hurricane María had just “visited” us just a few days prior.
