The paper describes a technique for using digital computers for reviewing building plans. Although the programs developed are based on the recently enacted New York City Building Code, the principles discussed are applicable to the general problem of plan examination and building code compliance. A prototype system has been developed and is discussed to demonstrate the feasibility and practicality of such a system. The advantages of the technique are considered and a number of procedures for its implementation are evaluated with respect to their effect on the overall plan examination process.
