PERMIT STREAMLINING Architects in a Leadership
With building and planning review staff cuts of up to 80% in jurisdictions across the country, it has become an increasing challenge to conduct permit processing that is more timely, efficient and transparent - without compromise to public safety.  

Architects are in an excellent position to help their local jurisdiction find and vet streamlining methods that are locally appropriate.  The result when successful is a 'win win'.  The community, profession and city government all benefit from stimulated economic development, good jobs, and higher performing buildings.

This program will give attendees the knowledge to join the conversations and take a leadership role in vetting, implementing and fine tuning permit streamlining:  

Why Permit Streamlining can be good for your community, for your financially strapped government; and for your business  all at the same time

Why it is critical that architects are at the table when regulatory streamlining is being planned, refined  and when it's being trashed.

What are the pitfalls on the dark side of permit streamlining  potential negative impacts on professional liability exposure, profitability, and project success?

How you and your AIA component can be a motive force in putting appropriate permit streamlining processes in place in your community, region and even nationally.  

How the AIA can be a part of sharing best practices, streamlining research, and vetting the many approaches so that local processes maximize benefits while minimizing the potential negative.  

What the permit streamlining landscape looks like across the country, from the simple "process tweak 101"  to the bleeding edge of tech innovation in automated plan review  and the future beyond.  

When Architects design buildings  new, rehabilitation, and historic reuse  the impacts are positive and sweeping.  Energy savings, creation of good jobs, and shaping of beautiful and functional spaces for people are benefits that follow when Architects are at work.  After all, the path toward a sustainable future is in large part shaped by the buildings we occupy.  

As we continue this long climb out of the recession, communities across the country are looking for measures to encourage investment in our built environment.  One economic development tool that has been able to leverage scarce resources very effectively:  Building Permit Streamlining.
