WE HELP YOU DEAL WITH THE BUILDINGS DEPARTMENT
Dealing with the Building Department - We can help you sail through it!
As Miami architects, residents for many years, we bring extensive knowledge of the construction industry, forging good relationships and an excellent reputation with local building departments. Our familiarity with this area, the various departments and disciplines, can help navigate your plans through the process quickly.
Unlike many Miami architecture firms, we only send completed drawings to the building department. Then, we carefully follow up with the entire permitting process.
