New building construction require submittal of plans. When engineering is part of the design, plans should be prepared by a licensed professional engineer or architect. Each plan sheet should bear their stamp and wet signature. Every building permit application is required to submit three copies of plans. The only types of permits that do not require plan submittals are appliance installation or replacements.
