Plan Reviews

Whenever any person, firm, business or other entity submits a plan in connection with a building permit for review and/or approval from the Office of the Fire Marshal, the fees for said review and or approval shall be based on aggregate building square footage as set forth below. The Office of the Fire Marshal shall have 30 days to complete the review of such submitted drawings and shall provide in writing authorization to release building permit to the Town of Orange Building Official in accordance with Connecticut General Statutes § 29-263.

The Fire Marshal's Office is required by statute to review all drawings and specifications for construction of all new buildings, and renovations to existing structures, with the exception to one- and two-family dwellings in the State of Connecticut. No building permit shall be issued to start construction of, or renovations to a structure until such time that the Fire Marshal has notified the Building Official that the documents provided for review are found to be in compliance with the applicable Codes and standards.

Effective July 1, 2012, a fee schedule based on the type of review, as well as square footage of the project was enacted. Said fee schedule is provided below.

All applications for review are to be completed through Viewpoint Permits. A link to the website is provided below. Once applicants are registered as users, they can submit drawings, device and finish specifications, and pay for the application all from the comfort of their home or office. Viewpoint Permits streamlines the application process and reduces the strain on resources for both the Town of Orange and the applicant! Walk-in paper applications are NOT accepted at the Fire Marshal's Office. All plan review applications must be completed online.
