Outsourced Building Permit Services, Management & Expediting
The building permit process can be challenging, frustrating and tedious. Did we mention expensive, too, with potential time lost during the permitting process? Our goal is to make it simple.
How? By handling the legwork for you and offering a variety of permitting services customized to your needs and budget.
Our primary goal is to provide better, more effective permitting services. Not only do we specialize in building permits, we pride ourselves on customer service and customer retention. We want to build long-lasting relationships with each of our clients, which, in turn, allow us to better understand our clients’ needs. We want our customers to hear our professionalism over the phone and in emails, since we strive to create a positive atmosphere in every conversation. We simply want to make your every-day permitting processes and procedures easier.
Permit Management Services
Our basic permit management services include researching the jurisdiction (if necessary – we already work in many locations throughout the United States
), completing all of the necessary forms, gathering any authorizations needed, submitting the applications, following the permit through the approval process, handling corrections as necessary, and shipping the finalized permit to your location or job site. We’ll also archive copies of your permits at our location as a backup for situations where permits are misplaced or not readily available. And we’ll provide detailed weekly reports regarding the status of all your submittals and permits.
Permit Expediting Service
Our permit expediting service allows us to turn permits around more quickly in one of several ways. First, our experience and ICC certification ensures that we know how to read your plans, determine the necessary permits according to local jurisdictions, and work within the requirements of the city planning department. This greatly reduces or eliminates the need for corrections and resubmits. Second, we have the tools and knowledge for epermitting or, in the cities where in-person submittals are still required, can work with our network of approved couriers. Lastly, if you are rolling out multiple sites, we can store your plans and drawings both in hard-copy on-site and digitally in our private cloud to expedite submittals. All of this adds up to the fastest possible turn-around time for expediting your permits.
Online permit applications – or epermits
– are a growing trend, with some municipalities steering towards or even requiring submittals to come in online. The idea is that online applications expedite permit approval or save contractors time. Unfortunately, the reality is that they can bring their own set of challenges in terms of technology requirements, training, and time commitment. At Express Permits, we have experience with online submittal platforms as part of our permitting services, have the necessary training or certification to use them in many cities, and are ready to handle the process for you.
Outsourced Permit Staffing
Hiring new permit technicians can be challenging, especially if your work is seasonal or affected by the economy (and whose isn’t?). Finding the right person, providing training, ensuring you have the right balance of demand to resources – all of these are frustrating, time consuming, and expensive. So, why bother? Instead, outsource your construction permitting work
to Express Permits. You can think of us as an off-site employee – one who is already trained and ICC certified and who you only have to pay for work performed! We can accommodate any work you’d normally assign to a permit manager on an as-needed basis as part of our outsourced permitting services.
