How Archistar’s eCheck technology works

Step 01

Simple digital submission

Submitters simply drag-and-drop their design files onto the platform. Compatible with PDF, CAD, or BIM formats, these designs can be reviewed in either 2D or 3D.


2D + 3D interactive

Step 02

Standardized assessment in minutes

Archistar’s proprietary technology digitally evaluates submissions based on your city’s local codes and regulations, instantly providing ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ results. This enables submitters to quickly review, modify, and resubmit their applications.


Immediate feedback
& transparency

Step 03

Higher quality submissions, faster approvals

Applicants receive standardized reports, enabling the creation of higher-quality final submissions. This facilitates easier assessments and increases the likelihood of approval.

Housing Accelerator Fund (HAF)

The Housing Accelerator Fund – launching in summer 2023 – provides incentive funding to local governments to boost housing supply across Canada.. The Housing Accelerator Fund will help local governments cut red tape and backlogs, build the housing we need, and give more people in Canada a safe and affordable place to call home. This fund will allow you to explore and implement new ePermitting technology to fast-track your permitting process.

The calculator on the right is an estimate on how many more net dwellings you could achieve in your municipality if you were to achieve a 30% lift in efficiency / approvals per year. It also provides a quick indication of the potential grant you could be eligible for under the Housing Accelerator Fund.

If you would like to learn more about our technology and how it can help your process to improve efficiencies and increase your approvals per year, contact us for a demo. Alternatively, you can also download our info pack that you can share with your colleagues.
