DCAB Plan Review Fees

Effective 01 January 2013

HB 2553, HD2, SD2, Relating to Building Design for Persons with Disabilities
Act 277 (12)

Effective 01 January 2013, DCAB will charge a plan review fee applying to projects covered under Section 103-50, Hawaii Revised Statues (covering all State and County projects).  Most Federal and private projects are not covered.

The one-time fee is due when plans and specifications are initially submitted to DCAB for review.  The review fees shall be four-tenths of a percent (0.4%) for the first $500,000 of the estimated construction cost plus two-tenths of a percent (0.2%) of the estimated construction costs greater than $500,000 up to and including $2,000,000 plus two one-hundreths of a percent (0.02%) of the estimated construction costs over $2,000,000 except as follows:
  1. The minimum review fee for plans and specifications subject to accessibility guidelines under this section shall be $200;
  2. The disability and communications access board may limit the maximum review fee for plans and specifications of infrastructure projects or projects managed by private nonprofit entities to $3,000; and
  3. There shall be a $50 review fee for projects with plans and specifications that do not reflect any elements subject to accessibility guidelines under this section.

Examples of how to calculate the plan review fee:


Estimated construction costs = $250,000


0.4% x $250,000
=
$
1,000

Estimated construction costs = $1,500,000


0.4% x $500,000
=
$
2,000


0.2% x $1,000,000
=
$
2,000




$
4,000

Estimated construction costs = $5,000,000


0.4% x $500,000
=
$
2,000


0.2% x $1,500,000
=
$
3,000


0.02% x $3,000,000
=

DCAB will amend the Hawaii Administrative Rules Title 11, Chapters 216 and 217 to document plan review fee procedures.
