Site Selection and Permitting for Residential, Commercial, and Institutional Work

Polhemus Savery DaSilva

Site selection and permitting are critical components in the successful outcome of every design-build project. While the distinguishing characteristics of each site will determine the final structure, many other factors will significantly influence the design. Local zoning regulations, environmental regulations, and location within historical districts, for example, impose restrictions that must be understood and thoughtfully addressed. For these reasons, many of our clients find it helpful to seek the participation of Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders early in the discovery process to ensure they achieve their goals.

We are pleased to advise clients contemplating new construction regarding the appropriateness of sites under consideration. Those who have secured a building site will appreciate our adeptness in assembling expert teams to provide a multi-disciplinarian approach to problem solving. This competitive advantage enables us to shepherd sensitive projects through complex permitting processes, often involving multiple regulatory agencies.
