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. CAD files must be output to grayscale or monochrome or we will 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 documents.
(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. If you wish to pay using a credit card, click here.
The submittal is not considered complete until ALL of the above items have been received.
When the submittal is complete, you will receive an email from us confirming that the submittal is complete. If you do not receive an email from us confirming that the submittal is complete, then something is wrong, and you need to contact us as soon as possible for instructions.
Note: The $175 state project registration filing fee does NOT include the plan review fee.
Also Note: If you submit an Owner Agent Designation Form (OAD), the owner information section on the form MUST EXACTLY MATCH the owner information that is recorded with TDLR for the project or it will be rejected.
