Construction Review Services

Program Overview

Construction Review Services (CRS) works to protect the health of people in Washington State by ensuring that licensed facilities have safe and healthy physical environments. CRS works with owners and designers during all phases of a project to:

  • verify compliance with minimum standards;
  • encourage best practices; and
  • provide timely technical input to help achieve these goals.

CRS also develops construction standards for state licensing and works with national code development organizations to create effective and coordinated codes.

Please note that many physical or functional changes to licensed facilities require formal review by CRS. If you have any questions about the reviewability of your project,contact us
