Hibbett Sports Saves 20 hours in Cypress, TX

Permit Place Team Efficiency Cuts Project Hours from 30 to 10 Saving Money and Time

Permit Place recently facilitated a critical renovation project for Hibbett Sports, a prominent player in the retail industry operating a 6400 sq ft store within a bustling shopping center in Cypress, TX. 

The permit expediting project centered on securing a building permit for tenant improvements.


One of the significant hurdles encountered during this project was delays in obtaining the submittal package from the client. This setback posed a potential threat to meeting the project timelines, crucial for the client’s business operations, especially in the fast-paced retail sector.

Solutions and Strategies

To navigate these challenges, our team implemented a robust strategy inclusive of our tailored Due Diligence process. This preliminary step is pivotal in our operations, as it involves pinpointing key project contacts early on, understanding submittal intricacies including plan formatting, naming standards, as well as foreseeing any potential sticking points. 

Our proactive communication and strategic planning were instrumental in pushing the project forward efficiently. This approach not only mitigated the delay caused by the late submittal but also accelerated the subsequent stages of the permit acquisition process.

Project Wins

Originally, the estimated turnaround time for permit approval was not clearly set due to the unexpected delay in receiving requested documents. However, our team’s effective management and expediting strategies led to a remarkable achievement: securing the first round approval in merely 10 business days. 

This was a significant win given the initial complications and the typical duration such projects take. We received first round approval and our project team allocated 30 hours for the task but impressively wrapped up in under 10 hours.
