Effective January 1, 2011, as required by the Beverly Hills Administrative Code Section 303.4.1, a Construction Management Plan shall be submitted on projects with the following criteria:
Construction Management Plan (CMP)
The Construction Management Plan, or CMP, is a document submitted with construction documents to the City in order to receive a permit for projects needing plan checks. The CMP sets out schedule deadlines and time limits for inspection milestones, in line with the City’s Technical Codes, that a project will meet. The CMP is submitted by the owner and must be approved before a permit can be issued. Once the CMP is approved, construction may begin and must be finished within 3 years, unless approved by the City Building Official.
As required by the Beverly Hills Administrative Code Section 303.4.1, the following document is to be completed and submitted to the City of Beverly Hills as the official Construction Management Plan whenever required by code upon requesting a Building Permit.
Total time to complete the project shall not exceed 3 years, unless approved in writing by the City Building Official prior to the building permit issuance.
A permit will expire if the work and inspections required by the Completion Notice are not completed within 30 days. If a permit expires, a stop work order may be issued and the permitting process will have to begin again, with a new application, fee payment, CMP submission, and permit re-issuance.
Prior to receiving a building permit, a Safety Deposit is required. The amount of the Safety Deposit is set by the City Building Official and is used to impose safety measures, such as security fencing or waste removal, on a site if construction ceases, or deadlines are missed. It must be posted at a local financial institution in cash or as a structured letter of credit approved by the City Attorney, and available to be used unilaterally by the City. The amount of the safety deposit is set by the City Building Official and is used to impose safety measures on a site if construction ceases, or deadlines are missed. If the City draws on the Safety Deposit, the owner is required to deposit funds within 5 days to maintain the required balance until final inspection and issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
The following information explains how and why the safety deposit would be implemented as well as what a participant should do if the City is required to use the safety deposit.
If any inspection milestone is missed, the City Building Official can issue a Completion Notice which requires completion of the work and inspection within 30 days.
For any condition that represents an immediate and unreasonable risk of harm or danger to the public, the City Building Official can issue a Safety Order requiring its immediate correction and use the Safety Deposit to protect the public if the owner doesn’t mitigate the risk.
