Navigating bureaucratic bottlenecks

Time is money, so knowing how it’s being wasted will improve your bottom line.

people walking down the stairsBusinesses have the best of intentions when embarking on new construction or expansions. After engaging engineers and architects, filing planning approvals and building permits, everyone hopes the project will proceed as planned.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. For lots of reasons, bottlenecks materialize. Someone fails to communicate. Paperwork goes missing. A policy hasn’t been followed, or someone gets sick. Maybe someone over-promised and under-delivered.

Every agency and business involved in your project has a vested interest in saving face, so people sometimes point fingers of blame in all directions. An objective perspective is important.

Consulting services are available to review the status of a project within the local government approval process, be it building permits, planning permission or other issues. Think about hiring someone to assist you.
