This is Rough
Sometimes this is all we have to work from. Can I take this to the building department for a permit? Can I send this to the trade vendors for pricing? You have heard of building off a cocktail napkin? This is not too far from it.
When you don't pull a permit in Beverly Hills, the building department can pull your business license for 12 months and the police can detain the person in charge of the construction (usually the project superintendent). Needless to say, we make it a point to prioritize the permit there.
Things are busy this week. There are proposals due, meetings (every day this week), and major Q & A on the current bids. Communication is everything during bid time.
Such is life this week and most others.
