Project Description - Provide all architectural documentation as required to obtain a change of use for the facility to be licensed as an assisted living facility by acquiring New Certificate of Occupancy including:

  1. Provide a commercial code review for the residence for the change of occupancy from R-1 to "Assisted Living" probably R3 if it is a wood frame home.
  2. Perform field measurement focused only on as-built floor plans (not measuring overall geometry to give us enough information to generate a full set of construction documents). This proposal assumes there will be no additions or internal modifications of space triggering the necessity for some version of a full set of building plan review. If there were internal modifications or any modification that triggers a full plan review our proposed time would increase. We would verify this in our site visit, propose and reevaluate service fees.
  3. Produce as-built floor plans.
  4. File drawings and code review documents with DLI or local jurisdiction.
