Chick-fil-A cited for not getting a building permit


Complete your permitting prior to starting construction to avoid costly delays

Honolulu – "The City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Planning and Permitting cited the Atlanta-based chicken restaurant chain Wednesday for a building code violation after its site inspection on Tuesday.

As a result of the violation, Chick-fil-A’s building permit fee has been tripled."

Failure to obtain a building permit can be a costly mistake and one that happens far more often than it should. Chick-fil-A, a nationally recognized and fast growing fast food restaurant, "...which opened its first restaurant on Oahu just last week, has been cited by Honolulu regulators for building out its space at Ala Moana Center’s Makai Market food court without a building permit, KITV4 has learned."

A lot goes on during a construction project and it takes a lot of coordination between all parties to get to completion and this can make that project checklist never ending. If you are looking to eliminate some of the headaches, let Phase 1 handle your regulatory and permitting issues. Not getting that permit can cost you a lot more than fines. It can cost you in delays and reputation.
