Low-rise residential buildings are relatively easy to design with few variations from one building to another. This implies it is easy to verify that structural drawings are sufficient and conform to the KCCA standards. The approval system follows “first come first serve” methodology. The simple residential buildings are placed in the same cue as the complex structures yet the approval of these residential buildings takes much lesser time, in other words there is no segregation of files. The emphasis of this research was therefore to quicken the approval process of structural drawings for typical 2-Storey residential buildings at KCCA using the aid that we developed. The structural elements considered were concrete beams and slabs. Chapter one covers the introduction to this research and justifies as to why the research should be implemented at KCCA. Chapter two covers the literature review in relation to the research. It illustrates the approval process, level of compliance to this process in Kampala, the materials considered in the research and common methods of construction of residential buildings. Chapter three covers the methodology. It shows the methods and steps taken to develop the aid. Chapter four covers the analysis and results gotten using the methods shown in chapter three. The analysis covered the different typical element sections. Chapter five covers the challenges, conclusions and recommendations
