Licenses for Plan Checking Agencies

ENERCALC has been helping structural and civil engineers become more productive since 1982.

As part of that effort, we offer planning / review offices in local jurisdictions the ability to accelerate their work via no-cost annual licenses to our software. 

These Plan Check licenses are intended only for professional engineers working for publicly funded agencies performing the tasks of reviewing submitted structural calculations.

Having your own copy of ENERCALC can provide additional streamlining for your approval process since ENERCALC users in your area can send you their project files for review, rather than sending paper, PDFs, etc.
