Description:  Almost all project plans require a California licensed engineer or architect to prepare them. However, not all plans have such a requirement.

Examples:  Plans for simple projects such as small single-story houses, room additions and garages can usually be drawn up by qualified individuals such as draftsmen.

Plans for new commercial buildings, apartments or hotel/motel buildings and changes in the use of existing buildings which cause a change of Occupancy Group generally must be prepared, stamped and signed by an Architect or Engineer licensed to practice in the State of California.
