Service First Permits saved my project from losing its Zoning Permit and Operational License due to the GC dropping the ball on some inspections that were needed. Their team was very knowledgeable and extremely responsive to the needs of the project. Their expertise in maneuvering through the building department saved me a ton of time. Money well spent!

Permitting solutions in a historic neighborhood

As a restaurant owner, building and permitting in a historic district or an area where landmark preservation committees exist can present unique challenges. These areas often have strict regulations and guidelines for building and renovation projects to ensure that the historic character of the neighborhood is preserved.

At Service First Permits, we specialize in permit management solutions to help businesses navigate the complex permit process in these areas. Our team has extensive knowledge of local regulations and can guide you through the entire process, from submitting permit applications to obtaining approvals.

One of the major challenges of building and permitting in a historic district is ensuring that your project meets the strict guidelines set by the local landmark preservation committee. This committee will review your plans to ensure that they are in keeping with the historic character of the neighborhood. Our team can coordinate with the committee to ensure that your plans meet all necessary requirements, and can make any necessary adjustments to ensure that your project is approved.

Another challenge of building and permitting in a historic district is obtaining the necessary permits. In addition to the usual building permits required for any renovation project, you may also need to obtain permits specific to the historic district, such as a Certificate of Appropriateness. Our team can coordinate with local government agencies to ensure that all necessary permits are obtained, and oversee the entire review process to ensure that any issues or delays are addressed promptly.

Overall, building and permitting in a historic district or an area with landmark preservation committees can be a complex and challenging process. At Service First Permits, we have the expertise and experience to help you navigate the permit process smoothly and efficiently, and ensure that your project meets all necessary regulations and guidelines. With our support, you can be confident that your project will be completed on time and within budget, while preserving the unique character of your neighborhood.
