But what is this below grade entrance? 

The ground level is what is called a grade. So a below grade entrance is a basement entrance that is given below ground level. In most cases, it’s made at the back of the house for easy accessibility.

The most important aspect of having this is to maintain your privacy. For, e.g., If you’re making your basement a rental unit, you wouldn’t want the tenants to go to the basement from inside your house. In such cases, we help you get a below grade entrance drawing permit to get things right & avoid any trouble legally. 

However, this permission for a below grade entrance necessitates significant paperwork, including site layouts, floor plans, and so forth. The below grade entrance drawings consider everything that exists at present and all the changes you’re proposing. 

To get the permits for these drawings, we may need additional information when your application is reviewed. So let us put expertise to work while you rest at home, and we will obtain the permit you require to create the below-grade entrance you have long desired.
