Agency Approvals

Agency Approvals

As a result of our high volume of work with private schools in Los Angeles, Parallax principals and staff have cultivated excellent working relationships with many senior and mid-level agency officials at the Los Angeles Planning Department and the Department of Building and Safety.

Parallax also has extensive experience helping clients complete the Environmental Impact Reports and Conditional Use Permits that are so often a part of planning new development for independent schools. This includes creating analytical drawings and planning exhibits, editing technical reports, presenting planning concepts at public hearings and helping clients build community consensus around their project.

Since the firm’s inception in 1994, we have been clearing permits for education projects both large and small. Through a combination of our building-code knowledge and our win-win negotiating skills, we have built a reputation as high-scoring client advocates in the public approvals process.
