1. Understanding the Land Revenue Management Information System (LRMIS):

At the start of a commercial project, Syed Brothers assists clients in obtaining a Letter of Confirmation of land title. Also known as “fard,” through the Land Revenue Management Information System (LRMIS). The fard serves as proof of property ownership. It is crucial for land use, plot proportions, road widening potential, cut lines, and reservations. Syed Brothers efficiently navigate the LRMIS process. Thus, enabling clients to acquire the necessary documentation within two days, at a very low cost. These charges may vary with the region’s commercial construction rates.

2. Obtaining No Objection Certificate for EIA:

Commercial projects must comply with environmental regulations. Therefore, it requires a No Objection Certificate (NOC) for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). This article will guide you through the NOC application process. Consequently ensuring adherence to your commercial building to environmental protection laws. You submit an Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) to the Environmental Protection Agency. Such are the protocols followed in Lahore, Punjab. The NOC procedure typically takes around 105 days. The cost of obtaining an NOC on Environmental Impact Assessment is approximately PKR 10,000 in Punjab.

We simplify the application process for building construction permits in Pakistan for their clients. Clients can apply to the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) by submitting a written application. Key requirements include signed application forms from professionals involved in the construction process. These include authorized civil engineers, practicing attorneys, and registered structural engineers. You also submit five copies of building designs, site plans, architectural and structural drawings, certificates of stability, proof of ownership, and relevant CNICs. Syed Brothers ensures efficient processing of your commercial project. Clients typically receive a response within 45 days.

4. Property Taxes and PT-1 Form:

Clients can obtain property tax valuations and certificates. These are available at the Excise and Taxation Departments of Punjab and Sindh. These certificates verify that the construction company owes no outstanding taxes. Additionally, the Excise and Taxation Departments inspect the structure. They then issue a PT-1 Form containing the assessed value and property tax due. Syed Brothers guides clients through the application process. This usually takes around a month without any further fees.

5. WASA Application Stage:

Syed Brothers facilitate the application of water and sewage connections. We assist them in this application process by providing clients with the required credentials. Clients must submit a series of documents to the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA). These are: authenticated copies of the owner’s CNIC, selling deed/proof of ownership, and property unit’s assessment. Syed Brothers ensure a smooth process that typically takes 60 days. However, the cost varies with the region’s respective commercial construction rates.

6. Approval for G+1 Floors:

Another pre-requisite for construction is seeking permission for constructing multiple stories. We must obtain approvals for each floor from licensed architects and engineers.

Along with a Certificate of Durability from an authorized architect. The structure is then examined by relevant departments. Said departments then issue a Certificate of Completion. They attest to compliance with Pakistan’s approved building codes. Our clients receive the Certificate of Completion within approximately 60 days.

Supplier Selection For Optimizing Commercial Construction Rates:

Following the regulatory approvals, we move to the procurement stage. This stage involves materials sourcing and sub-contractor selections. Syed Brothers initiate this process by conducting extensive market research. We look for suppliers with excellent track records and high quality in supply for commercial projects. After we have shortlisted them, we send out invitations to said suppliers to submit bids and quotations for their materials. During this process, we can compare prices, quality and delivery timelines.

Of course, the quotations provided are directly influenced by the commercial construction rates. These can vary depending on the availability of materials in the region. For example, 1 Kanal house construction cost in Islamabad is higher than in Karachi. This disparity is due to the unavailability of labor and the inaccessibility of materials. Since our companies are all across Pakistan, we can negotiate the best rates for you.
