    Important! Inhouseplans.com cannot provide the SACAP registration number if the plans are provided in electronic format (dwg, dxf, cex or Revit), due to the fact that inhouseplans.com has no control over any changes made to the plans afterwards and can thus not certify the building plans.

    inhouseplans.com will supply you with the SACAP registration number should you only order plans in hard copy (blue prints) and pdf format. Inhouseplans.com will not certify the site plan and or any other changes made to the original building plans by your own draughtsman. You could appoint a draughtsman in your area to do the site plan and facilitate the approval at the local authority. Please see directory for contact numbers of SACAP and SA institute of Draughtsman.
