• What about dealing with Health Department Approvals? Can my architect do this work?

Posted: May 16, 2018

Generally anything that comes close to being a restaurant or a bar or something along those lines will need to go through the health department review and approval process. As restaurant architects in Las Vegas, we offer this service and can walk you through the steps necessary to get that approval. After having helped many prior clients with exactly the same process, we know how and can get your project through it as painlessly and as quickly as possible.

If your project needs a septic system, grease trap, sewer sand trap filter, or has one now your project will probably end up needing to be processed by other groups within the health department for review and approval. It is possible that the existing septic system, grease trap, or similar item has been outdated and will have to be completely redone. If you are buying or leasing you should investigate the status of the system before committing.

While a lot depends upon the specifics of your project, you can assume that you will need to add two weeks to the critical path timeline for the health department if it becomes involved.
