At first glance, a piece of property may look like the perfect site for your business. There’s enough room for the initial construction and even future expansion. It’s close to vendors, partners, or supply routes. Without a doubt – this location can’t be beaten.
We hope you’re right. But with the myriad of zoning laws, codes, and permitting that goes into every construction project, it’s important to make sure your business is even allowed to operate in that area. If it is, improvements need to made before construction can begin? Are there easements to be considered? What about existing infrastructure?
Even the land itself can be an issue. In order for your project to be successful, what kind of improvements need to be made and at what cost. This could be the makeup of the soil, how much excavation will be needed, or if there is sufficient drainage from the land.
It’s easy to fall in love with a piece of property, especially if you’ve been looking for a while. But moving too fast could cost you time and money in planning costs, stop-work orders, or even penalties. Let Halbert Construction perform a background check before you cut the check.

Even with an existing building in place, it’s still a smart idea to find out if your needs will be met. Just like with new builds, there are zoning and code questions that need to be addressed. Even if the building was being used by a similar business, laws could have changed recently to force them to move.
That’s the kind of information Halbert Construction will give you with a site evaluation. The building itself may be up to code, but will those codes change depending on what you’re trying to accomplish? From the proper plumbing, ventilation, and even the number of parking spaces you’ll have out front can all be part of the equation.
