Pre-Application Meeting Consultation

BASIC INFORMATION

Prior to purchasing a property or embarking on a major construction renovation, many building owners wish to know what their project will entail from a Zoning and Building Code standpoint. The municipalities in the Des Moines Metro offer “Pre-App Meetings” to review Permit Process, Site Planning & Engineering, Building Code, Traffic, and miscellaneous issues affecting a building project.  The meeting is brief – typically 50 minutes – and the language and issues can seem foreign to the building owner.  Having an Architect present to interpret and dialogue (on behalf of the building owner) with City Staff can be most helpful in determining project feasibility.

The Pre-Application Consultation is a Low Commitment Consultation that allows the client to get professional input from an architect during the Pre-App Meeting.

 

Through this process the client will be able to:

  • Reduce risks

  • Eliminate Assumptions

  • Understand options & limitations
