Our Story

Permit Studio started as a small team of professionals from various backgrounds in the world of permitting and real estate development. We knew the challenges that builders, developers, and architects face getting their projects completed in the City of Chicago. That’s why we created a “full service” permitting agency that serves clients big and small.


Today, we have a growing team of professionals who help shepherd projects through all stages of the permitting and approval process. We have assisted many Chicago area projects and streamlined time and costs with our various services.


As we continue to expand, Permit Studio is adding new services to help make the developing and construction process even easier for our clients. You can rely on our team to be your partner through each stage of your building or renovation project.


Permit Studio works with commercial, residential, and industrial clients

We work with a wide range of clients from all over the Chicago area and beyond. In fact, there is not a type of project that we do not work on. This means that we have the experience to anticipate your project’s needs and help you get ahead of any issues or delays that your project may encounter. This saves you time and money on your building permits. Also, we help you look good in front of your investors or clients. Our vast experience as a permit expediter is why many of our first-time clients rely on us for ongoing projects.

Expert architectural submittal service

At Permit Studio, we can also handle the architectural submittal process on your behalf. Our team will work with city officials to make sure that your drawings are approved as soon as possible. If there happens to be an omission or error in the drawings, our team will work to communicate with you quickly and resolve the issue. This allows you to stay on schedule, save money and keep the project moving forward.


Our architectural submittal service starts with our team looking at all of the drawings associated with your project. We double-check every aspect of every drawing to ensure that there will be no delays from the city’s project manager. From there, we submit the drawings to the appropriate offices.


We will consistently monitor your architectural submittal and ensure that any concerns are quickly addressed. This is just one of the many ways we help streamline your projects and keep you on track to meet your projected completion date.


Top-flight code consulting


It can be difficult to navigate the thousands of codes that your project will have to follow in order to remain in compliance. That’s why we have a team of code consulting specialists who understand the ins and outs of building codes in the City of Chicago, Cook County, and the state of Illinois. From occupancy codes to egress codes and esoteric codes that you may not have heard about, our code consulting team handles it all. Our code consultants can ensure that your plans are in full compliance so you can move ahead without any worries.

Modern Office Building

Our service starts with our code consulting team pouring every aspect of your project. That includes looking over blueprints, drawings, and any other data involved in the project. The team will carefully scrutinize each detail to spot anything that can trigger a code violation.

As you continue on your project, our code consulting team will make on-site visits to your project to ensure that your site is ready for on-site inspections. We look at your site in the same way a code enforcement offer looks at it. We know what to look for. That allows our Chicago expediters to identify potential trouble that could set your project back.
