    Converting a single property into individual condominium units is a complex undertaking. We have successfully completed several multi-unit condo conversions. Your construction staff must have an understanding of current codes, legacy codes and how the city applies them during the conversion process. Our experience in this area makes the work of contractors and owners stress free. We handle electrical permits and inspections and bring our knowledge and experience to bear to minimize delays and extra expenses. Our priority is reaching the end goal in the quickest most cost effective path.
