Covering Your Zoning And Building Permit Bases

When it comes to zoning and building permits, you want someone on your side who can take care of all of the development on your project including obtaining permits and any zoning, rezoning, or building permits that may be necessary. At Rubicon, we can make it easy for you and take the guesswork out of the entire process. Through our trade services, we can walk you through each step, in order to provide a turnkey solution to your construction project. 


Once you have completed the design and planning phase of your commercial construction project, it is time to move on to the next step of applying for permits in order to begin actual construction. Obtaining permits can be tedious and time consuming. Rubicon works with the city to take care of every last one of those time-consuming details. We take on the details so that you don’t have to worry with them.
Building permits are required by law as a public safety measure, and each city is responsible for administration and enforcement of the building code.

There are many pieces of information needed in order to be reviewed for an application to be approved. A contractor should be familiar with the requirements of building codes and city ordinances related to building within city limits. Rubicon will gather all of the information needed and work with the city to get it through the application process and finalized.

Checking zoning requirements of a proposed location is one of the single most important parts of the entire construction process. Zoning laws may regulate the dimensional requirements of the lot and structure on your property. These restrictions can include minimum lot area, off-street parking, public entrance locations, the number of buildings on the lot and the number of dwelling units permitted within a certain area.

A good general contractor will make sure that no client enters into any contract until all zoning has been researched and confirmed. Rubicon Contractors will dot all of the i’s and cross all of the t’s for you. 

Building Permits

Building permits take into consideration if the type of building you are looking to construct will be allowed within the specific area you'd like to build, the way it is built, and with what materials. Building permits are permission from the government, that is required by law, before you begin your build.

At Rubicon, we believe that the little things really do make all of the difference. Through the skilled services we offer, we take care of all of the development on your project.
