Permit Place recently spearheaded a vital project for Vuori, a new 2,800 square foot retail space in a bustling Long Beach, California shopping center. This case study outlines the challenges, strategies, and ultimate success of this complex project.
The Vuori renovation required a suite of permits: Building, Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, and Fire. One major hurdle emerged when, after securing Building Approval, we discovered the plans had not been routed within the city for Fire Department sign-off.
This city oversight necessitated swift action and collaboration with city officials and the general contractor (GC) to expedite the process.
Despite the unforeseen challenge, our team’s proactive approach paid dividends. We leveraged our expertise and relationships to rectify the issue with the Fire Department within one business day, a significant feat under the circumstances. Our collaboration with the GC ensured accurate and timely information exchange, facilitating a smooth transition throughout the process.
The project’s crowning achievement was the first-round approval of all MEPs (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) permit. Our initial estimate for the turnaround time was 8 weeks, and we met this target precisely, demonstrating our commitment to efficiency and precision in project management.
