BIDDING, NEGOTIATING & PERMITTING

Bidding & Negotiating; MASA can advise on the choice of contractor by evaluating competitive bids.

The architect assists in the bid evaluation and assists in the preparation of the contract between the client and the contractor.Permits; Successful experience with MASA filing for construction permits and receiving approvals with local municipalities helps clients effectively move projects through the complete life cycle of their project.

Permits are the way the local municipality regulates construction. This is designed to ensure that all construction being built in their jurisdiction is safe.  It is the safety of the building occupants that is the primary reason for having construction codes.  In addition to the local building codes, there are also federal and state laws that govern construction, such as those covering energy conservation.
