Our Building Permit Process

Project Deep Dive & Consultation

1. Preliminary Job Planning

After receiving your request, we review your project and create your proposal. We can often provide a ballpark price on our initial call – and we’ll then schedule a site visit.

2. Initial Site Meeting

At our initial site meeting, we’ll discuss your design vision, timeline, and construction budget – as well as any existing building code considerations. We’ll also measure your site to produce as-built drawings.

Initial Site Meeting
Due Diligence & Feasibility Analysis

3. Design & 3D Visualization

Our skilled draftsmen prepare initial drawings. We then dive into your proposed design, developing project parameters and scope of work to establish your needs.

4. Due Diligence & Code Compliance

We’ll take you through our proprietary due diligence process, consult our engineers, and prepare for final submission. We’ll bring your drawings through the city’s design review.
