Permit Expediting Services


We take ownership of your project whether an entirely new, complex mixed-use development or a small tenant improvement. Burnham’s highly skilled project managers have expertise in all phases of the building permit process, and the same project manager works with you through the entire life of a project. Our proactive and systematic approach, developed through decades of experience, expedites the entire permit process.

Burnham organizes all meetings between municipal departments and the design and construction teams. Our permit expediters closely review all submittal packages for completeness and accuracy. We monitor the plan review process and provide your project team with regular updates and correction items. Burnham’s services also include archiving and tracking all your documents in our secure, state-of-the-art database which completely aligns with municipal online portals.



New Construction

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 sub-substructure construction, full building structure construction, and tenant build-outs.



Existing Buildings

Burnham has expertise with a broad spectrum of building alteration projects. We have worked on large office tenant improvements, rehabilitation of historic hotels, sports facility additions, residential remodels and additions, and build-outs for major retailers.



Licenses and Discrete Permits

Our wide-ranging services include assistance with a host of different licenses and permits. Once a building or tenant build-out is completed, we still help with permits for capacity signs, use of the public right-of-way, business licenses, and driveway permits.



Multi-Site Expansion

Burnham has provided multi-site expansion services to major corporations for several decades, and we represents national retailers, financial institutions, schools, and restaurants. Our in-house research team stays up-to-date on local jurisdiction code and permitting requirements...
