The Hoyt + Berenyi Process

With over 50 years of experience, we have developed a unique PROCESS that ensures every project success. OUR PROCESS has been tried and tested, and its success speaks for itself. OUR PROCESS starts with listening and understanding our client’s objectives, and it ends when the project is closed out and operational. OUR PROCESS includes extensive RESEARCH to get our baseline RIGHT. Without knowing where you are, you will not know where you are going or how to get there. OUR PROCESS includes the creation of a comprehensive DEVELOPMENT PLAN for permitting and development. This phase of OUR PROCESS alone can make the difference in the success or failure of your project. With a DEVELOPMENT PLAN in place, we begin DUE DILIGENCE. There is no sense in spending a lot of money only to find out that you cannot develop the property the way you had intended or within the budget that you had intended. 

Once DUE DILIGENCE is completed, we reassess the DEVELOPMENT PLAN and determine the CRITICAL PATH for the project. This allows us the ability to aggressively seek solutions in advance, thus, shortening the permit process and ensuring your project’s success. With all project issues in front of us, we ASSEMBLE THE LAND DEVELOPMENT TEAM. Every project needs a team (Surveyor, Planner, Wetlands Consultant, Environmental Consultant, Traffic Engineer, Landscape Architect, Civil Engineer, and Permit Specialist). Much like selecting a team of dogs for an Iditarod sled race, we select the BEST TEAM for every project.

With the DEVELOPMENT TEAM and DEVELOPMENT PLAN in place, real design work begins. It is our job as PROJECT CIVIL DESIGN COORDINATORS to ensure that COMMUNICATION is fluid and effective throughout the DEVELOPMENT TEAM. The Hoyt and Berenyi PROCESS includes DESIGN EFFICIENCY, value engineering, and years of experience. That means, we save you as much money as possible without jeopardizing the quality of your project.

OUR PROCESS includes a QUALITY REVIEW. We believe that every drawing or permit application that is submitted is our reputation. Not only must our work be functional and correct, but our work must also be easy to review and look good.

OUR PROCESS includes navigating permitting. We read, interpret, and understand applicable regulations and codes. OUR PROCESS ensures that every submission is complete and accurate. We consistently achieve this thus making it is easier for the reviewer to review. Reviewers appreciate our consistency. They are already overwhelmed and overworked. We want them to appreciate getting a project from us to review; thus, shortening your project’s review time. Once we are in the permitting system, we FOLLOW-UP.

With permits in hand, our work isn’t done. OUR PROCESS enters the CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION phase. We want to be accessible throughout the project because we know that communications during construction can minimize errors and save time/money. OUR PROCESS ensures that we are accessible for questions that may arise during construction.

Our job is finally done when your project is CLOSED_OUT. This final stage of OUR PROCESS. It is to ensure that we have reached our destination and that we have met your objectives. Permit requirements have been accomplished and clients are satisfied.
