At Frank Betz Associates, we strive to provide the best service to our customers, and seek to save them time and resources by delivering trend-setting, award-winning house plans that meet or exceed end users’ expectations. To that end, we are making a change from printed to digital single-use license house plans that will create more efficiencies in our customers’ building processes.
For single-use license house plans, we currently offer customers 5 to 8 printed copies of the plan that cannot be reproduced. The customers can only build one house from that plan.
Going forward, we will offer single-use license house plans as PDF documents that come with a single-use license.
Why the Change?
Many counties now require house plans to be submitted digitally for building approval. Previously, customers could submit a paper copy, which they would not receive back.
With single-use license PDF documents, customers can submit a digital copy of the plan to the county, making that part of the building process easier and quicker. If a customer needs printed sets from the PDF, they can order them from Frank Betz Associates, or have copies made at their local print shop. Only one house can be built, no matter how many sets of copies are made.
What’s NOT changing?
Usage of multi-use PDF house plans and CADD files will remain the same. If a customer purchases a multi-use PDF or CADD file, they can build the house as many times as they like.
We believe this change to digital-only house plans will result in easier management of house plans for our customers, creating more efficiencies, saving them time and money.
