Velocity: Fast-Track Permit Review

The Velocity Service and Expedition Service are two optional fast-track plan review programs offered by the District of Columbia’s Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA). For a fee, the speed of plan reviews and permit approval for a construction projects can be accelerated. In many cases, plans will be reviewed and approved in one day. While the speed of plan review is a major benefit, DCRA remains focused on compliance. Therefore, all plans submitted through any fast-track plan review program must meet all District Construction Code requirements.

The Velocity and Expedition services accommodate various types of building projects, such as:

  • New Construction
  • Demolition
  • Tenant Improvements
  • Interior Alterations
  • Use Changes
  • Revisions
  • Shell, Footing and Foundation
  • And More!
