The conceptual phase is where the possibilities are imagined and are typically illustrated to give a general idea of what is possible. This is the phase where one would see rough sketches or concept art to better grasp what the final product would be like. In the conceptual phase many things can change between the design phase to build out.
Once the general idea has been established, the rough sketches are brought into line with specific measurements and calculations to make the final product possible. The Structural plans make sure that the integrity of the concept and the feasibility of the project are solid before moving forward in the next phase of the project. The next step once the structural plans are in place and are approved is filling and pulling the permits necessary to make the idea a reality.
Permitting is a process that can take quite a bit of time. PCC will handle all the headaches that deal with pulling and filling permits, making it easier for you to focus on the big picture. Permitting gives us the proper clearances and makes sure that the project is up to code and ensures the safety and longevity of the final product. Typically permitting is one of the final steps before construction takes place to build out a project.
