What is a Site Plan?

Let's go into what a site plan is and how it applies to our line of work. A site plan also goes by the name of a plot plan and is essentially a diagram to show proposed improvements on a plot of land. When we make a site plan, it includes information for a parcel of land and the features of the landscape. For the most part, a site plan is used to show and explain the precise way the land relates to the features found on the property and its surrounding areas. When it comes down to it, a site plan is a guide. It will ensure the proposed plans meet with the existing authoritative codes for local building and zoning requirements. A helpful and important aspect for all contractors.

Projects That Require a Site Plan

Yes, there are certain projects that require a site plan. Some of the more common ones includes:

  • new or improved landscaping
  • new roof / roofline
  • encroachment issues with neighbors and borders
  • new outdoor structure
  • removing or remodeling a swimming pool
  • applying for a building permit (to add a home extension or addition, new wall, fence)
  • to apply for a building permit to meet city and town requirements

What Is The Difference Between a Floor Plan and a Site Plan?

There are some similarities between a floor plan and site plan, but for the most part they are different. A site plan provides detailed info on the areas of a plot of land that span beyond the boundaries of the building. Whereas a floor plan simply shows the details and elements of the building and the building only. And ends where the building ends. In a nutshell, a floor plan is a drawing with the roof of the structure removed and is the horizontal section cut through of a structure that shows the inside of the building.

It is common for both floor plans and site plans to compliment each other. Together they can provide a full understanding of the interior and exterior of the structure being built.
