Architects and engineers are empowered to validate their designs in terms of regulatory conformity and are able to correct / amend non-compliant aspects of their design prior to submitting to the Authorities. Because plan checking of the submitted designs make up the bulk of time taken within a regulatory department, the combination of such proactive industry action and automation on the part of the Authorities means an overall dramatic shortening of the time taken to process and approve a permit application.
