|We can usually advise a client on whether or not a permit is required for a particular activity. But we cannot predict in all cases whether or not the permit will be approved. At least not initially. If hired to prepare plans and permit applications, we can gather the necessary information and design the project in a way so that it will be permitted. In some cases, the original idea may need to be modified to obtain the permit. We work closely with the client to make sure in the end, the client's needs are still fully satisfied.
