Project submittal review

SJDG will advise the client with minimum submittal requirements, gather project data from the building departments such as building codes, amendments, and other basic construction info that could be useful in preparing construction plans.

Permit application documents

SJDG will prepare and fill out the proper applications required for the submittal process. SJDG will also allocate the adequate documents and special inspection forms to disperse to the client or assigned contractor.

Expedite initial plan review process

SJDG will advise the client if the city in which the project is in has any expediting, third party, or overtime procedures in order to get the project permitted as quickly as possible. The client should also be aware that by having SJDG handle their project also attributes in expediting their permit. SJDG handles such a large number of building permits which provides building departments a constant, friendly and familiar face to deal with.

Building permit fees

SJDG is aware that building permit fees could often be highly unreasonable. You could be well assured that by having the SJDG team as your consultant, your permit fees could be reduced substantially. With savings that in some cases will cover, if not surpass our fees. EXAMPLE: Sometimes its alot cheaper to attach a Casita or Game room than having it detached. This could save you THOUSANDS of dollars. We might reccomend you to change the name of a certain room to a different name ( Bedroom to bonus room)

Plan review status information

Keeping up with the status of a project is a main priority to the SJDG. Once the project is submitted into the governing agencies, we will supervise the permit process to insure the turn around time is adequately met. Any information that is derived about the project will be made accessible to the client. SJDG also keeps constant contact with the projects designer to facilitate the response to any comments or redlines in order to get the job permitted as quick and efficient as possible.

Permit issuance

Our permit team will equip the: Homeowner, Developer, Contractor or project coordinators with any final information needed in order to pull the permit on a project that is ready to issue. SJDG will also provide further assistance in pulling the permit if requested by the client, and is always ready to handle any revisions or addendums if need be.

I am writing this letter as a matter of recommendation for the San Jose Design Group. SJDG  worked closely with Sylvania Lighting Services on a recent design/build project for PG&E.  They provided a variety of blueprints, Title 24 calculations, and building permit management for us under some heavy time constraints.
SJDG performed professionally and helped us meet the customer goals.  In many cases they were given little to work with, and asked to develop complete plot plans and layouts without any existing drawings or materials to work from.  They proved to be innovative and responsive. If your business has design needs we would not hesitate to recommend them.

Mike & Ophelia F.  San Jose CA 

Thank you San Jose Design Group for assisting us with our renovation project.  Your preparation of construction plans and your facilitation of the permit process got our project off to a good start.  With your assistance, that phase of the project was much easier and completed much sooner then we expected.  We found your company and the subcontractors you referred to us easy to work with, and are pleased both with the quality of work done as well as the cost.  Thanks again for your help.


San Jose Design Group,

I would like to thank you and your company for the work you did to make our family room addition become a reality. After giving you our ideas, desires and wants, your staff did an excellent job drawing up the blueprints needed for the building permit. I like the idea of your company doing all the leg work pulling all the permits necessary. It was money well spent. Iíve attached some pictures of our completed addition. All inspections were completed with no errors. Except for the foundation and texturing of the walls, all the work was done by my wife Charlene and me. We had a great time doing this project. Now weíll sit back and enjoy it. Should I decide to build again, Iíll give you a call. Thanks again to yourself and your staff.


Jeff & Charlene E.
