Permit Place Online Portal

Tenant Portals

Every Permit Place client gets access to their own online portal. After securely logging in, they can access real-time updates and information about their submitted permits. 

In addition, tenants will receive automatic email updates when there is a change to a permit’s status.

How We Help

Construction Permits

Tenants want to customize the look and feel of a space to their unique needs.

We’ll guide them through the local building code requirements, including architectural, structural, mechanical, plumbing and electrical construction, and then oversee the permit submittal process on their behalf.

Sign Permits

Signage locations, size and placement will be of paramount importance to your tenants.

Permit Place can help them comply with your master sign programs and the jurisdiction’s rules around sign placement, size, and other factors.

Retail sign permit

Health Permits

If tenants are planning to serve food, the local public health department will be involved.

We can help them prepare applications and expedite the review and inspection process for quick approvals.

Storage Racks

Size, height, and arrangement of storage racks will all need to be reviewed and approved by the local planning department.

Our team will help package and submit floor plans that give tenants the best opportunity to receive their permits.

Storage Rack Permits

Shop Within a Shop

When retailers combine forces to open a store within a larger store (e.g., Apple within Target) the benefit to both brands can be significant. But the construction of that space will often require permitting. 

We’ve helped top brands, like Target, attain the permits needed to build out these interior retail spaces quickly and efficiently.
