Project Entitlements

Generally, most municipalities will have restrictions regarding Zoning, Design, Site Planning, etc. In order to move forward with a project, City approvals must be gained and public meetings held. Sketch Architecture Company has negotiated, the sometimes-pithy path, in gaining approval from public boards and city administrators. In working with the client and the municipality, most issues are resolvable. In the same way the building code governs concerns for the completed building, entitlements govern the dimensional setbacks, landscaping, building design and height, parking, etc.

Knowledge of a city's zoning code and it's processes are used by our architects in the design of the project. Sketch Architecture Company is conversant in all current planning initiatives and has a broad knowledge gained from a diverse, multi-state project base of experience. The principals of Sketch Architecture Company have been an integral part of Planning & Zoning boards, Design Review boards, and many other entitlement boards, which brings an understanding of the process that other firms do not have.
