Architectural Permit sets for Mixed-use building

(Residential over Commercial)

Our team has experience delivering quality mixed-use building permit sets in a quick turnaround time for addition, remodel, and new mixed-use buildings. While our California licensed Architects can provide the architectural permit sets, our Civil and Structural Engineers can collaborate with them and provide you value engineering design if you need engineering permit sets as well. As most of your budget will be spent during construction, our value engineering can help you reduce the cost of materials during construction.

Due Diligence, Feasibility Study and Project Entitlement

Are you considering building a new mixed-use project? We can help you understand the complete process design and engineering process from the conceptual phase to the finalized approved design of your building. Here’s how we can help you:
Due Diligence Study - We can start with the Due Diligence Study for your project. We will research the city and county regulations, the zoning of the land that will apply to your project and the exact design process the project should follow. Further, we will also research the requirements to obtain a permit for your project.
Feasibility - The next step is to look at the physical possibilities of the actual building that can be built on the land. We look into the exact building code and regulations that apply to your building based on the location of the land. We check the following list (but not limited to) to determine the size of the building that can be built

  • Setbacks
  • Height limitations
  • Landscape areas
  • Amenities
  • Driveways
  • Parking layout and count
  • Open spaces

Depending upon the building type and location of the land we would check for other regulations as and when they appear.
If you are thinking of building a ground-up mixed-use building or doing major additions to your existing building (adding floors or increasing horizontally) and you want to understand the maximum number of units that you can build, the feasibility report will be especially valuable for you.
Project Entitlement - The objective is to get the approval of your project from the authorities and help you visualize your project. We will prepare an architectural set that includes a preliminary site plan, floor plans, elevations, and selection of materials to be used in the construction of the building. We will also prepare preliminary Civil plans. We can submit these documents to the city to get approval for your project. Once approved we will start working on creating the construction document set.

Architectural Plans

Our architects have rich experience delivering quality architectural plans which are both in sync with the vision of our customers, and in compliance with the California codes. The nature of the construction industry is such that it is generally very susceptible to getting city comments. However, due to our special emphasis on quality, our plans get fewer comments (if any) which we are able to incorporate quickly, thereby saving you a lot of time.

Architectural Plans
3D Model & Renderings

Once the architectural plan is finalised, we can help you prepare quality 3D model & renderings so that you can showcase the project to your end customers (buyers) and start making the bookings at an early stage. This is a great way to ensure a good cash flow early on and many of our developer clients love this.

3d Model & Renderings
Civil Engineering Land Development

Our civil engineering land development services include subdivision plans, site grading plans and earthwork estimates, drainage & sewer plans, stormwater design, hydrology studies, erosion control and retaining walls, for residential and commercial land development projects.
