Warehouse Permit Services

Professional Warehouse Permit Services

warehouse permit servicesIndustrial storage of all types requires permits through cities and counties in order to meet the modern regulations and codes. Codes and regulations are constantly evolving, we know this from experience. For this reason it is beneficial that you hire a firm experienced in warehouse permit services to prepare and submit your permits. In the words of a wise man… “You’re the expert in your business, and we’re the experts in permit business.”

Permits applications can be a complicated process, especially when you are unfamiliar with city codes and regulations. City plan checkers and fire inspectors want to ensure that a project is done correctly. For this reason they are extra wary of inexperienced consultants. Here at QMH, we’ve been in business since 1991 and have worked with dozens of cities on dozens of permit projects, even so far as to conduct a project for the cities themselves.

One of the most important factors when determining the scope of the permit project is the address of the project. A common misconception is that the racking material itself is permitted. This is partially true. When a permit is completed, that material is approved for use however, that permit is only valid for that location. For example, when considering to relocate permitted material, that material will be required to be permitted under the new location.
