Why does this Tenant Improvement Cost So Much?

    I’m often asked questions like this in the early phases of a tenant improvement. The client has many questions during early phases of an office relocation, and they normally would prefer to pin down the cost question quickly, so they can make a decision whether to move forward.

Don’t Do It Yourself: Hire an Architect

Mesa Building Permits

Hiring an architect can help you to avoid some major legal hassles, particularly in Mesa, as this article from AZCENTRAL shows:

Building Permits and a Mesa Architect

Mesa targets do-it-yourselfers who don’t get proper permits
By Gary Nelson The Republic | Wed Jan 2, 2013 9:21 AM

People who think they can save a few bucks by ignoring Mesa’s building-permit requirements sometimes are in for an expensive surprise.

In rare cases, illegal additions have to be torn down altogether. In others, the city will discover that the work has been done, require that the owner get a permit and may require modifications to bring the do-it-yourself work up to code.

And in rarer cases still, unsafe additions can contribute to property damage and even personal injury.

Mesa would really rather not have any of that happen. So the city is launching an educational effort aimed at helping homeowners understand when and why permits are needed.

“Sometimes the work is quite expensive and the reason it is of concern to us is because there are potential life safety issues if it is not done properly,” said Laura Hyneman, who oversees Mesa’s code-compliance office.

Avoiding Fines By Getting a Home Remodeling Architect

Sometimes violations of city codes can be quite expensive.  Fines can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.  All of which can be avoided by getting the proper building permits.

How Can An Architect Help With Building Permits?

Because of all of the training, any architect is an expert at navigating the sometimes complicated permit process.  They can tell you easily what type of permits to get and when, and in many cases get the permits on your behalf.

So be sharp.  Don’t find out when it is too late that the project you’re working on required a permit.  Call in an architect that can navigate Mesa’s permit process.
