Building Design with the Builder in Mind
Sunrise Design Services has been producing permit-ready plan packages for over 20 years. In that time we have worked closely with plans reviewers, inspectors, contractors & developers to create a standardized plan format that provides an accurate, code-compliant set of plans that building officials can reliably approve and builders can profit from. We take great pride in our excellent approval rate in many jurisdictions throughout the Pacific Northwest.
All plans are provided “permit-ready” in compliance with applicable state and/or county
code requirements and designed to the projects specific site conditions & criteria using
Prescriptive Design methods.
Plans include all structural details & specifications for approval & construction;
- Floor Plan Views
- Foundation Plan
- Structural Details, excluding Framing Plans,
- Concrete Footings & Pier Pads
- Beams, Headers & Columns
- Joists & Rafters
A Typical Set of Permit-Ready Plans:
Simpson Strong-Tie® Products are specified for all structural members’ mechanical
connections and Prescriptive Wall Bracing Hold-down requirements.
State Energy Code Compliance for insulation requirements and door & window efficiency
values are designed and specified within the plans using Prescriptive Design methods.
Manufactured Roof-Truss Engineering required prior to plans submittal is the client’s
responsibility. Coordination of the plans design and truss engineering is available
Plot [Site] Plans required for plans submittal are available upon request, at additional cost.
Plot Plans include the minimum information required for compliance and permitting and
are not to be considered as a survey of the property.

Preliminary design work required to establish a concept and square-foot basis for

floor plan design although some structural and/or elevation design work may be
