SUBMISSION OF PROJECTS FOR STATE ARCHITECTURAL BARRIERS PLAN REVIEW
Failure to follow these instructions may result in processing delays.
What is Required:
(1) One complete set of the construction drawings in PDF format, and
Note: If the project is new construction or an addition to an existing building then we must receive the civil construction drawings or the submittal will not be complete and the plan review cannot be performed.
Important: Do NOT submit colorized drawings. If necessary please output CAD files to PDF grayscale or monochrome or we may not be able to review the drawings. We review drawings on a computer monitor, so we do not need very large, plot size drawings. Please compress files to PDF to the maximum extent practicable for legibility on a high-resolution monitor (4K). Lines, graphics, and small text must be readable.
(2) A fully completed TDLR Proof of Submission Form (POS) in PDF format signed and dated by the Texas licensed design professional having overall responsibility for the design of the project, and
Note: If there is no Texas licensed design professional the Proof of Submission Form is not required.
Important: If you were unable to upload the construction drawings or POS form to the Texas Architectural Barriers Online System (TABS) during project registration, please submit the construction drawings and POS form (in PDF format only) by email or by sending a direct download link to Submittals@TexasAccess.com
Also Note: Where there is not a design professional with overall responsibility for the design of the project, the Owner (holding title to the property) is required by state rules to register the project with the TDLR and submit the construction drawings.
(3) Pay the applicable fee per the Fee Schedule.
Payment may be made by check or money order payable to 'Texas Access' at Texas Access, 3415 Misty Meadow Dr., Dallas, Texas 75287. Please be sure to include the project name or the state assigned (TABS) project number, and indicate if a receipt is needed. Please contact us if you want to utilize a different payment method for the fees.
The submittal is not considered complete until ALL of the above items have been received.
Note: The $175 state project registration filing fee does NOT include the plan review fee.
Purchase Orders: We will not accept purchase orders in lieu of receiving payment by check or money order PRIOR to the performance of any service. This is not negotiable. The Rules require payment prior to the performance of any service. Click here if you would like to self-generate an Invoice suitable for check issuance purposes.
Also Note: The previously provided credit card payment option has been removed due to persons overpaying or underpaying the fees, as well as selecting the wrong fee type. This required a considerable amount of time every day to refund fees, send emails, and make phone calls. So, please pay by check or money order. If you do not have the ability to write checks or obtain a money order, please contact us and we will provide a special credit card payment option. We will look for a way to re-implement this option on the website in the future. Thanks for understanding.
