Before starting their project, contractors must apply for San Diego building permits. In order to have their permit application approved as quickly as possible, it is imperative that the contractor knows and follows all of the San Diego building codes. Obviously, the role of these codes is to ensure that buildings are made in a way that makes them safe for human habitation or use. However, wading through pages and pages of regulations, remembering every last detail, and knowing when to apply for variances can be an extremely difficult process.
At Burnham Nationwide, we pride ourselves on having a well-trained staff of professional consultants who work with our clients every step of the way to ensure that their applications are processed as quickly and as smoothly as possible. We keep apprised of all changes to the San Diego building codes as well as the effective state and county codes. Over the years that we have been doing business in California, we have developed close relationships with city officials and other government employees so that we are one of the first to know about any upcoming changes to the codes. When you become our client, you reap the benefits of those close relationships. You also gain the advantage of our years of experience with applying and getting approved for San Diego building permits.
As you know, these codes cover every aspect of the project from electrical and plumbing work to mechanical and architectural issues. In addition, there are laws added periodically that address matters as diverse as green efforts that require outlets for electric cars, to codes that fall under the rubric of the Americans with Disabilities Act to make commercial structures more accessible for everyone. Our clients get to choose how deeply they want us involved in their project. Some clients only need us to review their applications to identify any potential mistakes that may cause the approval to get delayed. Other clients want us to work with them from project inception through the permit application process to final city inspections. Regardless of your preferences or needs, we have a consultant to assist you. We look forward to working along with you on your next San Diego building permits!
