Planning and Permitting

At Shelby Construction, we know that the success of your project begins with sound planning. Proper planning and permitting are essential in construction projects. They help ensure compliance with regulations and laws, emphasize safety, reduce costs, improve project timelines, and enhance quality. This involves several steps:

Step One: Logistics

We will evaluate, discuss and establish plans for factors including material selection, design feasibility and logistics. We will define the project’s goals, objectives, and scope. We also identify any potential obstacles or risks that may need to be addressed during the construction process. We will reach out to the local municipality to ask about feasibility, setbacks, zoning and drainage ratios for your project.

Step Two: Cost

We will develop project estimates, conceptual budgets, an overall schedule of events, and provide an engineering package if needed. We will seek out vendor bids during this step to ensure the procurement phase meets budgetary expectations.

Step Three: Permit Acquisition

During this stage, we will discuss the required permits and develop a schedule for obtaining them. Depending on how large or extensive the project is, the permitting agency may require a site plan. The site plan will show that the proposed construction is in line with state building and zoning codes.

Step Four: Finalization

We will have a pre-construction walk-through where we’ll finalize details and get ready to kick off construction! We’ll discuss the project sequence, key dates, production schedule, and review the scope of work.

Step Five: Kickoff!

Once your project is fully worked out and a path forward is reached, we will move your project from planning into production. This exciting step is where you will begin to see your vision take shape.


See what Shelby Construction customers have to say about their experience.

“The Shelby Construction team did a fantastic job on my home renovation. We bought an older home which we knew needed a serious amount of work due to pests, mold, electrical issues and water intrusion in addition to being just plain dated. Think wood paneling and yellow laminate counters. We ended up gutting the house down to studs and rebuilding it with all new plumbing, AC, electrical, drywall etc. Shaun and his crew were very solution oriented and professional and made sure all of the work exceeded even my picky standards. I now have my dream home to raise my family in thanks to the Shelby team.”



“I used Shelby for a repair on my house in order to close on it as well as the full renovation after we purchased it. We moved walls, and adjusted load bearing members, framed stuff, new electrical, plumbing, basically everything so it wasn’t necessarily a simple job. Shaun and Shaun were great to work with and communicated very clearly the whole time and we got what we wanted. Great experience – definitely recommend.”
