New development, repurposing, expansion… No matter the objective, you need the right permits in hand to make your project a success.
An ability to know the permitting processes and quirks of each local market is critical to a project’s success. Learning these nuances takes time. Understanding critical paths and identifying hurdles, such as design and impact fees, before they’re problematic is also important—and again takes time. How do you make time when permitting timelines can vary based on your market and the availability of municipal review staff? Not to mention the ever-changing development codes and amendments that put more constraint on your project’s deadline. The solution: find a partner with local connections, national resources, and experience playing the permitting game.
We have decades of experience navigating agency bureaucracy, developing relationships with local offices and creating thorough preliminary plans and supporting documentation that allow us to identify and address potential problems at the beginning of a project, avoiding “fire drills” and detrimental challenges to your projects. We also have extensive expertise spearheading meetings and conversations with agencies to understand processes and concerns, relate them back to our clients, and develop strategies for addressing and resolving the issues so that they don’t slow the development process.
