Green Building Enrollment Procedures
The following procedures have been established to assist in expediting projects through the submittal, review, and approval processes as required for participation in the Scottsdale Green Building Program.
1. PROJECT QUALIFICATION/PRE-APPLICATION MEETING
Prior to completion of project construction documents, applicants must schedule a meeting with Green Building staff to review project for qualification into the Program. It is preferred that participants become involved in the qualification process as early as possible in the project’s design phase.
For each project enrolled in the Green Building Program the applicant shall complete the following documents:
A. Enrollment Form
B. Rating Worksheet
completed 8-1/2 X 11 checklist
checklist is also required to be listed on sheet of plans (CAD version is available from city)
C. Builder Agreement
As part of the qualification, you will receive a “Green Building Submittal Approval”. This entitles the project to be designated as a “Green Building” when submitting plans to the “Plan Review/Permit Services” counter for the building permit approval process.
2. APPLICATION FOR PLAN REVIEW AND BUILDING PERMIT
After receiving green building qualification, you will need to take your plans along with the required submittal documents to the “Plan Review/Permit Services” counter to complete the plan review/building permit approval process. Please note that you must take the “Green Building Submittal Approval” with you. Your plans will then be assigned a “Green Building” designation for “fast track” plan review.
3. PLAN REVIEW
Once plans are in the review process, the City Plans Coordinator will notify the designated contact person upon completion of each review cycle. All inquiries regarding their status during this process should be directed to the City Plans Coordinator @ (480) 312-2545 or the city web site - http://eservices.scottsdaleaz.gov/permits/planlookup.asp
When resubmitting corrected plans, it is not necessary to resubmit the required Green Building documents. However, any major plan changes that may affect the project’s green building rating should be brought to the attention of Green Building staff.
5. BUILDING PERMIT & INSPECTIONS
Upon approval of plans, a building permit will be issued according to normal procedures. Your project will need to follow the inspection sequence schedule established by the Building Inspection Division. Inspections are designed to ensure compliance with program requirements. Projects not able to maintain qualification as a green building will be required to resubmit plans for revisions as a non-participating project.
