"Do I really have to submit plans for my project???" ... YES!--Plans are required for all commercial and residential building. 

SUBMITTAL DOCUMENTS  [A] 107.1 General. Submittal documents consisting of construction documents, statement of special inspections, geotechnical report and other data shall be submitted in two or more sets with each permit application. The construction documents shall be prepared by a registered design professional where required by the statutes of the jurisdiction in which the project is to be constructed. Where special conditions exist, the building official is authorized to require additional construction documents to be prepared by a registered design professional. Exception: The building official is authorized to waive the submission of construction documents and other data not required to be prepared by a registered design professional if it is found that the nature of the work applied for is such that review of construction documents is not necessary to obtain compliance with this code.

We currently utilize 2018 International Building Code (commercial) or the  2018 International Residential Code (residential).  These may be found in a number of places online available for you to purchase, digitally, or in print.  

BE PREPARED to submit your plans as a .PDF document upload when you are completing your submittal of building/structural plans as well as Electrical, Plumbing, and/or Mechanical drawings.  

Mechanical Plans shall be accompanied by the specific load calculations for the permitted address/ location.
