Permit Place Cuts Hibbett Sports’ Approval Timeline by 25%

Permit Place recently took on a challenging permit expediting project for Hibbett Sports, a leader in the retail industry. Located in a 4,752 sq ft space within a shopping center in Montgomery, AL, the renovation project required tenant improvement building permits.


The project was met with several significant challenges. The local jurisdiction made things a bit challenging by providing incomplete responses to our due diligence research questions—a critical step in understanding project specifics and regulatory demands. 

Additionally, the absence of an online portal to track the intake and review processes meant our team had to rely solely on traditional communication methods such as emails and phone calls, complicating timely updates.

Project Wins

Despite these obstacles, our team successfully expedited the permit process faster than anticipated. The estimated permit turnaround time was initially set at more than 30 hours, but through diligent management, we cut that time by more than 25%, getting approval in just 21 hours. 

The renovation project for Hibbett Sports in Montgomery, AL, stands as a testament to Permit Place’s ability to handle permit expediting under stringent conditions and tight timelines. Our comprehensive approach and steadfast dedication to overcoming obstacles highlight our capability not only to meet but exceed client expectations in the dynamic field of permit acquistion.
