A Large Consulting Project With Owner
“We take the uncertainty out of the construction process. Feel confident as we help you with any decisions or problems you might face with your project.”
Construction is complicated. Whether you are doing a minor remodel or building a home from scratch, it can be daunting. From blueprints to change orders to examining plans to dealing with permits to buying materials — the list of things to do can seem never-ending.
Turning to a consultant, an expert in construction, means turning to someone who can guide you through the process, answer any of your questions, and advocate on your behalf in case you come across any gray areas. They help you through the decision-making process so you can be sure you are making the best decisions for you, your budget, and your project. Blue text?
An expert on your side will help lower your stress level and ensure the project is done within your time and budget limits. He can help communicate with everyone involved, such as the architects, contractors, and inspectors. This is because a great consultant is an expert not only in construction but in relationships. He is dedicated to helping clients deal with the process and any issues that come along with it and is knowledgeable enough to deal with all other personnel in a fair manner.
At Crystal Construction Consulting, our consultant works with clients such as homeowners, contractors, and even attorneys. He can also work with owners or function as an owners’ representative.

How do permits work? Can you help me pull permits or do I have to do it myself?
A set of plans must be drawn by the homeowner or the architect in residential jobs, and by an architect in commercial jobs. Those plans have to go to the building department to be processed to ensure that they are in compliance with all of the local building, zoning, and planning codes. The timeline depends on how backlogged the local building departments are and whether it’s a minor or major permit. As a licensed construction service, we can help you obtain permits.
