We base our work on the scrupulous compliance with the general and specific laws regulating the professional work of architects and engineers. We also take seriously all legislation about the construction activity, technical specifications and even good practices. The verification and supervision of compliance is generally the competence of the respective Municipal Councils, unless exceptional cases such as the industrial licensing, usually national departments.
As such, whether a clean construction or rehabilitation of existing buildings , any activity in the construction sector must be compulsorily notified to the competent City Hall. What varies is the way or the legal procedure and how this communication should be made. Usually it is called planning submission or building submission and it should demonstrate the compliance with all regulations.
In some cases it involves the presentation of projects to obtain a planning permission or building permission. In other cases advance notice will suffice. See below the various types of procedures for licensing or contact our architects for a more specific situation.
