About Us

We Don’t Just Get Permits, We GET Permits!

As State Permits, we committed to helping its clients successfully navigate the complicated world of building permitting and ensuring permits are delivered on time and within budget. Our clients have access to dedicated and experienced project teams that handle every aspect of the permit process on their behalf, from initial plan submission through final approval.

What began as a small operation serving a few clients in a single state has evolved into a national permit management and consulting business serving clients across the US and Canada, with a vast network within jurisdictions in both countries. While we have grown substantially over three decades, our roots remain firmly planted in good old Midwestern work ethics.

State Permits, Inc. takes great pride in the work it does, the relationships it has built, and, most importantly, earning the satisfaction of its customers.
