Construction Siteplans in Atlanta

In most cases when home owners or builders want to improve the property structurally, such as:

  • constructing a new building
  • making a home addition
  • proposing a new concrete drive/parking lot
  • installing in ground pool
  • major landscaping design with grading

the county building department will require to have a construction siteplan of what you plan on doing.

Construction siteplans in Atlanta especially in Fulton, Dekalb, Cobb counties must show following items:

  • boundary of the property with bearing and distances
  • all the existing locations on the land parcel (buildings, driveways, decks, patios, etc)
  • topography (xisting elevation contours and proposed contours, how much dirt will be removed and how much to be brought)
  • trees including the diameter dimensions and species (hardwood or pine trees)
  • utilities (sewer, water, gas, electricity, water wells if apply)
  • easements (drainage, sewer, power and others)
  • zoning (with building setbacks and other restriction per zoning category)
  • proposed elements (new building, additions, etc)
