Do you want to begin construction on your site, but have not obtained all your required permits? Stop! You need to have all permits in hand prior to construction and EMK can help you.

EMK's extensive experience in Land Development allows us to offer a full range of permitting services. The permit department partners with businesses and individuals in Southwest & Central Florida to assist and expedite the permit process. We strive to provide excellent service to our clients, while maintaining our standards of quality, efficiency, and reliability.

The Goal of the Permitting Department is to lessen the burden on our clients and minimize any loss of time in obtaining Site Development and Building Permits. We provide that face-to-face interaction bridging the gap between the client and the permitting agencies.

EMK’s permitting team is not just a courier service. We see each project through from start to finish, which has become invaluable to the navigation process through the local municipalities. Our weekly team meetings allow us to discuss project status and pending approval issues, and formulate resolutions. Our services include “trouble-shooting” and tying up those loose ends.
