[Read below for individual breakdown of our Consulting Services]


Building Permit:     

Many Clients request a Preliminary Building Permit Sketch. Most of the time with New Home Construction a survey is required in which most Surveyor's will produce a Building Permit Sketch at the same time. To have your Surveyor complete the Sketch is handy, but in most cases the clients have no say in the positioning of the Dwelling and costs can be high.

       Our Goal is to help this process and do a Preliminary Building Permit Sketch at a more reasonable cost. Also to get the clients input into the Design and Layout of the Property. Once the Preliminary Sketch is complete we can just Courier a disk or Email it to your Surveyor directly. Then the Sketch can be updated by your Surveyor accordingly to meet the requirements of the City.  

    We can also assist the Builder or Owner in completing the Sketch, adding needed by-law information, Sub-Division requirements, set backs, Proposed grades and drainage information that the city requires.


Supplier / Manufacturer Managing:

    Along with doing Design Work, our company will also take on the role of Mediator or Coordinator, to ensure that the Line of Communication with Suppliers and Manufacturers is working to the Benefit of the Project and not Slowing or Pushing the Project over Budget.

    For most of the Projects we have worked on the Client is normally the Contractor and Owner, which is the smart way to go to save you money in the long run. Most of the time Suppliers and Manufacturers may Communicate using Technical Terms or they may just need more information that the Client may know. This is were we can assist, we are able to make the right decisions on your behalf to ensure that the Manufacturers and Suppliers are Helping the Project move along at a steady pace.
