Design Development Consulting Seeks to Save Developers and Franchise Owners Billions Through Cost-Cutting Permit Management and Green Feasibility "Go/No Go" Analysis

Launches New Website

WALL, NJ--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - Design Development Consulting, LLC finds smarter permit planning methods help developers and franchisees slash costs for building projects.

Anthony Tumminia, President of Design Development Consulting [DDC], estimates that billions of dollars are wasted by failing to integrate comprehensive permit planning methods. He estimates that, based upon McGraw Hill's July's nonresidential building costs of $160.0 billion (annual rate), failure to execute better permit planning is costing billions every month.

Smart Permit Planning Saves Millions on Construction Projects
"Poor planning isn't just waste; today it translates into job loss and loss of market share for the corporations willing to invest in capital projects," stated Tumminia. "Projects today involve so many different entities and elements calling for a level of project management. The permit process calls for an expanded arsenal of skills and knowledge including: surveys, solar technologies application expertise, project planning and timing, concept, landscape and engineering design, traffic assessments, and environmental reports," he concluded.

McGraw Hill's July numbers represent the third straight improvement in annual growth of 3% from the prior month but still down significantly from 2008.

DDC's Permit Planning involves a broad range of disciplines:

  • Strategic permit cost-management
  • Integration of multiple teams, contractors and designers, and the ability to expedite permits
  • Employs best practices involving requisites affecting green ownership, rebates and tax credits
  • Extensive knowledge of the new renewable power technologies and applications
