Attached checklist gives an overview of what is required for a plan review for most common residential building projects.
Contact PBI for requirements for unique projects or for projects not included in the checklist.
Important: Ask the municipal office if they require a geotechnical report, as per their zoning bylaws.
If so, ensure that the Structural Engineer designing your foundation receives a copy of that report and references it in the foundation designs.
NOTE: Owner must complete and sign the E-mail Consent Form at the bottom of the Checklist.
Owner(s) should always include their email address since they are ultimately responsible for compliance.
Form is pdf-fillable but must be signed. Print legibly, if handwritten.
Detailed Site Plan is vital information for a plan review. There will be delays if you do not provide the following:
Download and thoroughly complete the PBI Specification sheet for the applicable building project.
Be sure to include all information requested in the specification sheet(s).
Renovations must be described in detail to determine if energy code compliance will apply.
Applicant can complete the bottom half of the attached form and then email it to the municipal office with all documents required for a plan review.
DO NOT send this form directly to PBI. The top portion must be completed by a municipal official.
All new heated buildings, additions and major renovations in Saskatchewan must be built energy efficient.
Designs for the building project must show compliance with the National Energy Codes. Required form(s) and accompanying calculations must be submitted for the plan review. Failure to provide this information (completed by a competent person) will result in a delay in building permit issuance.

After the plan review is completed and the building permit is issued by the municipal office, the owner or owner's agent (i.e. contractor) must call PBI for
all required inspections as identified in the Plan Review report. Failure to do so may result in enforcement action at additional fees to the owner.
