The City of Los Angeles ADU “Standard Plan” Program

April 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PDT

The City of Los Angeles ADU “Standard Plan” Program
an AIA LA GO! Roundtable Discussion

In midst of LA’s current housing crisis, ADUs have become critical to the City’s ability to expand and diversify the supply of housing. In fact, over the last 3 years, ADUs have made up 22% of newly permitted housing units, or more than one in five. The Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety’s ADU Standard Plan Program is one way the City is streamlining the permitting of new, detached accessory dwelling units. The Standard Plan Program provides customers in L.A. easy access to a range of pre-approved ADUs, offering them a user-friendly process to find a design suitable for their property. All submitted ADU standard plans will then be reviewed and pre-approved by the LADBS for compliance with the Building, Residential, and Green Codes for future use when obtaining a building permit.

After a year of development (including a 7-month pilot phase), the ADU Standard Plan Program launched Friday, March 5th. The program rolled out with designs from 14 firms with final and pending standard plan approvals. Now, the program is open to all firms who meet the basic requirements.

During this roundtable discussion, representatives from Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Office, as well as, staff from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety will outline the genesis of the ADU Standard Plan Program as well as provide an overview of how the program is currently being implemented.
