File Format & Limitations

  • Autodeskleavingcos.gif (340 bytes) DWF file format, in black and white, is the standard for submittal and reviewing plans. The city uses Autodesk Design Review for maximum flexibility in "rolling up" plans, viewing redlines, limiting files sizes, etc.
  • The upload mechanism limits file size to under 25 MB.

Submittal Requirements

  • Floor/foundation/framing plans shall be on one (1) sheet (without match lines).
  • Sheet naming conventions need to follow the Design Standards and Policies Manual (DS&PM) requirements.
  • Supported Supplemental Material types: Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word, and Excel.

Please submit:

  1. A file for mechanical, plumbing, and electrical plans combined
    (name file MPE.dwf)
  2. A second file including architectural and structural plans combined
    (name file ARCH.dwf)
