Want to convert a mobile unit into a food concession?

— or modify a medical unit?

Your plan must be reviewed and approved by L&I before you start converting a mobile unit into a food concession unit or altering a medical unit. L&I must make sure that changes (alterations) to these units meet safety standards.

For more information about this, go on to Plan Review .

What does L&I consider an "Alteration"?

An "Alteration " is the replacement, addition, modification or removal of any equipment or installation that affects the construction, planning considerations, fire safety, or the plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems.

The following ARE NOT considered alterations:

  • Repairs to equipment with approved parts;
  • Modification of a fuel-burning appliance according to the listing agency's specifications;
  • Adjustment and maintenance of equipment.

How much are the fees?

To help estimate your costs, view the fee schedule. Fees can vary, however, depending on what you are doing. Call your local L&I office to request the fees specific to your job.

Want to convert a mobile unit into a food concession?

— or modify a medical unit?

Be sure to contact Labor & Industries (L&I) to get approval for your plan before you start converting a mobile unit into a food concession unit or modify a mobile medical unit.

Think of L&I as Washington's "building department" for portable structures

Portable structures are regulated by L&I for such things as electrical wiring, the water supply and waste water systems, and any mechanical systems such as gas piping or heating and cooling equipment.

It is not L&I's jurisdiction to regulate what elements you might need to satisfy health department requirements — the health department can require a hand-washing sink, for example — but it is L&I's responsibility to be sure it is plumbed correctly.

Here's the process for getting your conversion vendor unit or mobile medical unit alteration plan approved and the work inspected and approved by L&I:

    • First, you need to create a plan and submit it to L&I for review.

The conversion vendor unit (or mobile medical unit) plans you submit for plan review must contain enough information to determine conformance with the applicable conversion vendor and medical unit codes .

Structural: Only concentrated loads of 500 pounds or more in a 16-square-foot area need to be addressed. Compliance can be accomplished by means of WAC 296-150V-0350. This would apply to units that were either built or converted from another structure as a Vendor Unit" under WAC 296-150V. If you wish to build or convert a structure into a "Commercial Coach," please contact the Department at FactoryAssembldStruc@Lni.wa.gov or 360-902-5218.

Electrical: Show the general location of outlets, lights, switches, and the main distribution panel box (this may be combined with the floor plan drawing or done as a separate drawing). Include a schedule showing what the breakers in the main panel box are, including breaker sizes and what they control. Provide electrical load calculations that show the overall electrical demand in amps. (See sample Electrical Floor Plan .)

Plumbing (Water): Show the locations of all sinks, holding tanks, and other plumbing fixtures. Include pipe sizes for water supply. Provide information on the operating pressure in the water supply system as well as the length of water piping from the inlet or pump to the furthest fixture. (See sample Water plan .)

Plumbing (Drain): Show the locations of all sinks, holding tanks, and other plumbing fixtures. Include pipe sizes for drainage, waste, and vent pipes. Show the location and size of the drainage system outlet. (See sample Drain plan .)

Mechanical: If you have gas appliances

in your commercial coach, you must show the gas piping layout and size. You will be required to supply the BTU/H input requirements for all gas appliances. Show the location of the gas supply inlet or tank. Provide the type of fuel (i.e. natural gas or propane) and the length of the piping run from the tank or inlet to the furthest appliances. If you have a heating or air conditioning appliance, you will have to show conformance to the state energy code on the forms provided. (See sample Gas plan .)

  • Next, L&I must review and approve your plan before you start the work.
    • In order for L&I to review your plan, you must submit a completed Plan Approval Request — Conversion Vendor / Medical Units (F622-035-000) (135 KB PDF) form and a minimum of two (2) complete sets of plans that follow the specifications listed in the form's instructions, or they will all be returned to you without a review being performed.
    (See sample form with instructions .)
  • You must pay fees in accordance with the published fees schedule in WAC 296-150V-3000 for L&I to examine the plans for conformance to the proper building codes.
  • You will also have to purchase a Conversion Vendor & Medical Unit insignia. Download this Application for Insignia — Conversion Vendor/Medical Units (F623-021-000) (135 KB PDF) . (See sample form with instructions .)
  • Once L&I has reviewed and approved your plan design, they will assign it a plan number and will return to you one copy of the plan by mail.
  • Then, L&I must inspect and approve the work you've done.

    Note: Be sure to check with all local building departments where you plan to use your unit. Some building departments may not allow the use of conversion vendor units in their jurisdiction. You may be required to have a commercial coach in that jurisdiction.

    L&I must inspect and approve your converted vendor/concession or medical unit

    Use this helpful checklist first

    Once the work has been completed on your unit, go over this Vendor/Concession/ Medical Conversion Units Pre-Inspection Checklist (124 KB PDF) before requesting an inspection to make sure everything is complete.

    Call L&I to schedule an inspection

    Then, contact the nearest L&I office to make an inspection appointment with a Construction Compliance Inspector.

    There will typically be two inspections:

    • Cover Inspection - one just before the walls and roof are concealed by the interior finish material when all of the electrical wiring, plumbing and other elements are in place; and
    • Final Inspection - when the unit is completely finished and ready to go down the road.

    Be sure to give the inspector a copy of the approved plans/design so they can inspect the structure.

    Some of the fees you will be charged:
    • Travel time and inspection time at an hourly rate.
    • Mileage.

    To help estimate your costs, view the fee schedule. Fees can vary, however, depending on what you are doing. Call your local L&I office to request the fees specific to your job.

    Once your unit is approved

    Upon completion of the Final Inspection. the inspector will affix the Conversion Vendor/Concession & Medical Unit Insignia to the outside of the unit to show approval by L&I. This insignia must be maintained as a permanent record of L&I's approval.
