  • I have worked with Coastland since my local jurisdiction began using third party plan review firms. Their plan examiners have always shown a comprehensive knowledge of all applicable codes and ordinances. They consistently provide relevant correction comments to my design plans so permit issuance can be obtained in a timely manner. Given a choice, I now use Coastland exclusively and highly recommend their third party plan review services.
