This site is a collection of resources for Building Permit Streamlining. It is intended to support Chapters of the American Institute of Architects in engaging with their community in the implementation of effective and efficient permit processing. Permit Streamlining efforts usually are focused at the local level, and Architects in the local community are in an ideal position to help shape streamlining measures that are appropriate, effective, and efficient.
Permit Streamlining offers significant economic development benefits to local communities by reducing costs while encouraging investment in a high performance and sustainable built environment. When AIA and local jurisdictions work together, resources are leveraged and results are assured.
