ARS Brochure  

Effective December 21st, 2018,
our Plan Review and Inspection
fees will increase due to
implementation of the new Texas
Architectural Barriers Online
System (TABS).

Our fees have remained steady for
more than 20 years, but at this
time we see a need to raise them.

We appreciate your business and
thank you for understanding!
