Permitting is next – this is also something we do in house. We are licensed and have the ability to permit in almost every city and state on the east coast, and we are able to conduct the following:
- Code research
- Site surveys
- Survey properties to calculate square footage allowance
Our engineer service is something that is necessary most of the time due to some towns requiring us to engineer exterior signage for wind loads and attaching methods. We also work closely with Historic Review Committees where we meet with them so that we can understand and follow their guidelines that are required for signage in that historic area. Most have sign criteria’s we have to follow.
Variances are also something that are handled by an in-house team – certain locations require us to have an attorney for projects on commercial property. We have a list of attorneys up and down the east coast that we have relationships with to work with us to attain a variance and approval for a sign installation.
