Mall Renovations

If theres one thing Permit Advisors Mall Developer clients know, its that we are the go-to team for large-scale renovation/remodel projects. We work with some of the nations leading developers like Westfield LLC, Simon Properties, and General Growth Properties (GGP). In 2015 Permit Advisors worked concurrently with roughly 100 tenants to completely manage the building permit process through the City. This required working directly with Simon Properties and the Citys Building & Safety Department, as well as County Heath Department to develop a one-of-a-kind submittal process in order to work with such a high volume. Our experts handled every plan check meeting and worked tirelessly to ensure that all tenants were ready to open in time for the Grand Opening!
