We facilitate all the permits for the entire lifecycle of a new construction project. Burnham’s project managers provide expert assistance and advice beginning with demolition, continuing with substructure construction, full building structure construction, and tenant build-outs. In a number of cities, Burnham has pioneered the use of phased permitting which allows construction to run continuously rather than waiting for all the plans to be completed.
Our permit expediters have working relationships with the relevant municipal departments, utilities, and other stakeholders so we can manage all the required approvals for a large-scale construction project. For example, we interface with local jurisdictions to facilitate such needs as site plan approvals, traffic closures, underground coordination, municipal design reviews, and landscaping.
Burnham has worked on many of the iconic skyscrapers in major cities. However, our experience also includes large mixed-use developments, sports arenas, performance venues, universities, airports, hospitals, and five-star hotels. Our code compliance consultants are available to do a complete assessment of building plans prior to permit submittal to assure compliance with the relevant codes.
