Expanding a business comes with a ton of responsibilities: building the brand, marketing and advertising, product consistency, and customer service are just a few of the things weighing on business owners during the beginning stages of a project. Building something from the ground up or enhancing and expanding an existing structure can both seem to be overwhelming tasks, and focusing on these 5 things will be the best way to get a project done efficiently.
Every real estate project starts the same way, with a feasibility study. An architectural feasibility study helps real estate developers and investors understand the viability of their development goals for a property. The benefits of an architectural feasibility study:
- Limit the risk on a project by verifying that all development goals can be met within the confines of the building and zoning regulations
- Allows the design team to prioritize what is most important for the client by clarifying all development goals
- Produces documentation that proves all goals can be met

Zoning Use & Approvals
A building permit is the approval to construct per the approved building plans. Building permits in their entirety require multiple steps to gain approval. Development projects must comply with all building and zoning codes, be found to engineer sound structures into the existing site fabric, and propose a safe, habitable environment. An authority-approved permit is the evidence of deliberate planning for future buildings, their context, and everything that makes a project feasible. These steps, forms, drawings, and pre-requisite approvals can be a burden to coordinate, which is why building permit expediting services benefit business owners. Permit services seamlessly organize all the requirements and documents needed. These teams know how to submit to local government agencies in the proper format and order, which maintains efficient and timely review times from the governing body.
