Permitting
The permit application process at the local, state, and federal levels has been the driving force for many projects. In many instances, obtaining permits and approvals is an arduous and often frustrating process to the owner. Provan & Lorber assists clients through the permit application processes quickly and efficiently, saving our clients money and expediting the project's design time. Our staff is familiar with federal, state, and local regulations and with the requirements of municipal planning boards. We have worked very hard at streamlining our permit acquisition process and have gained a reputation for meeting this special need of our clients.

At Provan & Lorber, we involve the review agencies early in the process, negotiating permit requirements as the project proceeds. When plans and specifications are completed and the formal permit application is submitted, the reviewers have already provided their input and can thus complete their review in a shorter time period.
