Retailers Mitigate Permitting Setbacks With Permit Advisors
To improve its permitting process, Under Armour and other retailers invest in Permit Advisors, a permit expediting company.
LOS ANGELES, June 13, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Obtaining construction permits is often a daunting task requiring numerous government sign-offs and varying local guidelines. These complexities can leave retail developers behind on projects and cost loads of money due to code violations and increased timeliness.
Retail giant Under Armour, known for its assortment of performance apparel, footwear, and accessories, admits that construction permitting can become a development obstacle. "For many years we were reliant on our architect to handle our permitting services with moderate success," comments Under Armour Vice President Thomas Walsh. "We identified permitting as an area of opportunity to reduce costs and decrease our development timeline."

To improve its permitting process, Under Armour invests in a permit expediting service. "We decided to partner with Permit Advisors as our preferred permit expediter throughout the United States," says Walsh. Experienced permit expediters like Permit Advisors are trained to alleviate potential code issues and keep the permitting process on-schedule and within budget.
Permit Advisors supports retail clients like Under Armour by facilitating and consulting throughout the intricate permitting process. Retail stores must consider signage, parking, dumpster placement, racking, fire alarms, and much more. With backgrounds in planning, construction, and architecture, Project Managers are familiar with local code requirements and can anticipate potential pain points throughout the process. Because of this, they can mitigate possible set-backs such as zoning errors and missing documentation.
Additionally, Permit Advisors works to expedite the permitting process by negotiating over-the-counter reviews, minimizing the number of submittals required, and constantly communicating with officials to minimize complications. This results in a smoother process for the architects, designers, and project managers.
"Utilizing Permit Advisors as our direct expediter has been very successful and allowed us to plan our projects much more accurately while also reducing risk and costs in the permit process," says Walsh.
