FAQ

How much do you think this will cost?...or...What is the square foot price?
The cost of commercial construction is very dependent on the type of materials selected along with other choices owners make. That being said, all construction types must pass a plan and cost review in order to be approved by underwriting to ensure that the price point is in line with the open market. If you do not have access to a plan and cost review or an appraisal, please contact us to further review your needs.
Can we fit what we’d like to build?
The Florida Building Code in conjunction with Land Development Code utilizes a matrix to determine what types of buildings can be located in certain types of zoning conditions. If you do not have a FAR calculation readily available, please contact us for better direction.
How long does it take to get a permit?
Common nomenclature refers to having "a permit" as if there were just one permit to obtain from the City or County. This, however, is not entirely accurate in that there are different kinds of building permits and there are multiple government agencies for site work that all need their respective permits in order to proceed with a project. There is also the possibility of needing various levels of re-zoning which is a separate process, but proceeds permitting. The shortest process is 3 months and the longest is 15 months. To better narrow in the time frame please contact us with more details on your project.
