Plan Review

All building construction plans are reviewed for life safety and structural integrity prior to the issuance of a permit. Reviews are based on Sedgwick County and City of Wichita Unified Building and Trade Code, International Fire Code, and Sedgwick County and City of Wichita Unified Zoning Code.

A Residential classification means One-Family or Two-Family structures. All other structures are considered Commercial. (Industrial is 'lumped in' with Commercial.)

Significant Code Updates
As of January 1, 2019, MABCD no longer accepts paper submission of commercial building plans. Plans are accepted through MABCD's ePlans software.

All Commercial Building plans must go through the plan review process. Below are the steps for successful, timely response. If you have any questions, please call. (Contact information is on the left in the lower section.)
