You realize that your home or your work place is your biggest investment of time, energy, and money.  It is a good idea to think your project through before committing too much of your valuable resources. Usually a comprehensive planning and design take about the same time as a construction. You can do some research on your own or contact us. AN EASY START WILL BE TO SET UP AN INITIAL CONSULTATION AND PERFORM NEEDS AND OPTION ANALYSIS FOR WHAT YOU HAVE IN MIND.

Why follow the Rules in Building Design and Construction — Applicable Regulations Compliance

Current regulations usually reflect accumulated experience with fire safety and sound construction practices for different types of buildings and are intended to protect you and public in general. They usually spell out minimum requirements which should be strictly followed or exceeded.  

Why Building Permit is important?

Majority of construction improvements have to be permitted by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) because it is the law of the area where these improvements will take place. Like other violations of law, construction or alterations without proper building permits and approvals can have very bad consequences. Those consequences could be a stop order, a fine, a denial of financing or insurance as well as a  lawsuit.
