  Planning for Success- Streamlining the Process

  • All projects get either a permit or a comprehensive “plan review letter” with everything needed to move forward.
  • Done in conjunction with a “resubmittal success meeting” 1:1 conversation with the goal of ensuring approval upon first resubmission.
  • Free pre-construction meetings after permitting
