Attention business owners- expect delays if you are seeking a permit for new commercial real estate construction or tenant improvements to existing space. The City of Austin is currently behind in its issuance of permits for Plan Review due to an unusually high volume of request orders being submitted. Typically a two-week process on average, the time period for Plan Review is presently stated to be at a four -week minimum. It would be wise to plan accordingly to such conditions in order to receive your permit in the timeframe you need. Local contractors have been swamped in what appears to be the busiest time in over ten years. So once again, if you are seeking an Austin Commercial Construction permit be sure that you send your request out a couple of weeks earlier than normal during this period of peaking requests. If you need help managing the process feel free to contact us.
