Kohl’s is renovating a 2,500-square-foot retail space within a bustling shopping center in the heart of Ukiah, California. However, before any physical changes could start, there were intricate permitting processes to navigate.
That’s where Permit Place came into the picture, bringing our expertise to ensure a seamless journey from planning to ready-to-issue permits.
Every project presents its unique challenges, and Kohl’s renovation was no exception. Amidst the array of permits required, including Building, Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, and Planning approval, a peculiar demand surfaced—the City mandated hardship forms for any exterior sidewalk work.
To ensure a smooth, quick approval process we conducted a full due diligence report. These reports are designed to get ahead of challenges. Before initiating any project, we identify the key project contacts. Understanding plan formatting and naming standards, pinpointing potential sticking points in the submittal process, recognizing special seals, and ensuring familiarity with local building codes, fees, forms, submittal departments, contractor requirements, and other granular details are all critical to an expedited review.
Thanks to our diligent team’s skills, our refined processes, and exceptional communication with the Architect of Record (AOR) and the city planning department, what was projected as a 6-week timeline was achieved in just 3 weeks.
Achieving first-round approvals for Kohl’s epitomizes our commitment to excellence and efficiency.
