Early Strategic Partners

Many clients turn to Metropolis during the earliest stages of planning, both for new developments and when contemplating a new real-estate strategy. Developers and property owners contact us and share their vision—or their challenges. Our code and zoning consultants research the targeted area to determine suitability for proposed projects. These feasibility studies cost little yet prove invaluable in avoiding potential issues.

Such early partnership is especially beneficial in the post-pandemic world. The higher costs of labor and materials, coupled with lengthy approval timelines, amplify the impact of missteps. We identify the various municipal agencies with jurisdiction, as well as potential obstacles, and develop a comprehensive construction strategy.

Ongoing, Expert Oversight

Throughout the construction process, code consultants review preliminary drawings to ensure regulatory compliance. This expert analysis allows design professionals to address issues that could lead to objections. Early identification also enables clients to pursue other options without derailing the construction schedule.

In-depth knowledge of every aspect of regional construction processes supports all Metropolis service offerings. In addition to our Code & Zoning Division, we have in-house experts who specialize in plumbing regulations, energy code, and violations. Bottom line: Our insider knowledge saves clients time and money by helping clients create the most efficient strategy from planning to occupancy.
