Locations and permits

You know the location of your business is going to be essential for building your client base. When your site is accessible and easy to find, you will not have to work as hard to build your business.

Once you have the perfect location, you will need to move forward with getting the necessary permits. Depending on the property’s current zoning, you may need to take additional steps to apply for rezoning.

Review meetings

These are the critical steps to moving forward with the construction phase of your new building. It is essential to have experienced support to go through these steps with proper preparation.
