TAP leaders monitor the development of computer technology and its impact on architecture practice and the entire building life cycle, including design, construction, facility management, and retirement or reuse.


New AI tool to pre-screen permits for code compliance

  • 1.  New AI tool to pre-screen permits for code compliance

    Posted 08-08-2023 02:54 PM

    It's so nice to connect! I'm an architect in Chicago and have worked as a code consultant and third-party plan reviewer for 9 years. I'm now working on an early-stage startup (me and a friend from MIT) dedicated to streamlining the plan review process and enhancing the permitting experience for both architects and city reviewers. 

    Our tech will provide simple, user-friendly tools for technical designers and city reviewers to easily and quickly do code compliance checks and generate project-specific code compliance checklists. 

    Please note - We're not trying to sell you anything, we're just doing market research before we fully build out the tool!

    We've been talking to several design firms to learn more about how they:

    1. Currently check projects for code compliance at each major design phase
    2. Make sure younger / less experienced team members design up to code
    3. Make sure projects are able to get permits in a timely manner

    I'd love to connect via e-mail or on a quick 15-min call to learn more about how your firm currently addresses the challenges in making sure projects are code-compliant and go through the permit process in a streamlined way. You can schedule a quick call with us by clicking here or email me at

    We'd also be more than happy to send a summary of our findings once we're done!

    Thank you for your time in advance.
