What our clients are saying

Richard Weidhaus

Chief Building Official
The requirement that we asked of RSM was something like 20 permits per week, for six to eight weeks—they said no problem, and they did it. They’re closing in on 170 reviews they’ve done for us (in 2020). We asked them to do 20 per week—that’s a lot. I think their communication is probably their biggest asset, I was excited that their process was established, it worked well, and I never had to call on them and check on them—they provided us with an email every step of the way.

We provide individualized support to Municipal Building Departments.
