The FPP program is designed to serve customers that perform on-going interior tenant improvements and where facility maintenance, upgrades and renovations are frequent. The program is available to owners of buildings, building management companies and their tenants.

FPP staff are available for consultations which can begin even before preliminary documents are prepared. FPP Inspectors are authorized to evaluate proposed projects on the spot. Depending on the complexity of the project, they can approve immediate startup of the project. FPP Inspectors can provide job site consultation, approve work to begin, and then promptly issue the approved plans and permit cards.

The program is based on an annual registration system. Once a facility is registered, an FPP team is assigned to that customer for all projects processed under the program. This approach builds long-term ongoing relationships with the FPP team achieving a high level of familiarity with the facility. This in turn leads to faster and more efficient service to our customers.

Participants may register one or more buildings or facilities and each building must be re-registered annually. The same team will complete plan reviews and will service all customer sites regardless of their physical location. Monthly billing statements are issued which identify all charges by date, discipline, project number or name, and type of service rendered.

FPP services are billed at an hourly rate. This allows FPP to offer additional services such as preapplication consultations. An hourly rate is charged for all services on projects with a value of less than $600,000. Projects valued at $600,000 or more are assessed standard fees for all building plan review and building permit portions of the project. Trade permits associated with standard permit fee projects will be billed at the hourly rate.

While the program is designed to expedite the plan review and permitting process it is not intended to relax code requirements, or to provide lower inspection or licensing standards than that required under State of Oregon Statutes, Administrative Rules or City of Portland Municipal Titles. The goal is to provide inspection and plan review services as efficiently and effectively as possible to FPP clients.
