Your guidance and expertise through the labyrinth of permitting requirements proved invaluable to our organization. I only wish we would have brought you on sooner. You demonstrated a keen understanding of the process and organizational structure of the County of San Diego as we obtained the required signatures for each element of design. Your interaction between our professional Design & Engineering Consultants and the County personnel was outstanding. When the public agency moved the goal posts on us several times during Design Development, the determination you exuded was a great asset to our team. We could not have accomplished this very difficult task without your assistance, and we appreciate all your efforts.”– Jeffrey Harper, President of Harper Construction Company, Inc. and AGC San Diego 2018 President

“I’ve had firsthand experience working with Terry Strom, and I am very impressed with how he was able to take a very disorganized effort by the design team and guide it to success. Using his persistence, tact, deep knowledge of this permitting process and the people involved, he pushed our project though in a timely manner. He showed finesse in managing the people on the public and private side, the private side being a very disorganized design team lacking leadership, in a very professional manner. This effort was made on our behalf by Terry for our new Corporate Office in Mission Valley. PIT2 Strom! “Push it thru Terry!” has been an immense help. I would recommend Strom Entitlement-Permitting Project Management and Terry Strom to anyone looking to effectively navigate their way through the entitlement and permitting process.” – Walter Fegley, President/COO of Reno Construction
