Launched in 2008, Kimberlina Whettam & Associates (KW&A) provides development consulting and is a leader in municipal permit expediting for land use projects.
A boutique development consulting firm with decades of combined experience, KW&A’s twenty-member team in Downtown Los Angeles keeps a strong presence with various city departments on a daily basis, and has the human-power and resources to meet tight deadlines and provide ongoing project support.
KW&A knows it takes commitment, organization, knowledge, and a strategic approach to get the right answers. When the approval process is inconsistent and unclear, KW&A works closely with senior City staff to monitor code interpretations to provide our clients with the most accurate, up-to-date information for their development projects.
Excelling in project approvals, KW&A manages projects from start to finish: from the design phase, through entitlements, plan check, clearances from local agencies, permit issuances and inspections, to the final issuance of the certificate of occupancy, allowing the project to open its doors for its residents, employees, or customers. Given sensitive project timelines, KW&A ensures success in a timely manner by swiftly coordinating with city agencies and the development team. KW&A is a key partner and trusted advisor on a wide range of both commercial and residential development projects, including: high-rise structures, hotels, restaurants, mixed-use and affordable housing, multi- and single-family home development projects, transit-oriented development projects, sports arenas, municipal buildings, institutional centers, and large residential estates.
With local government approval processes becoming more complex, it is more important than ever to work with KW&A to facilitate timely approvals to meet hard project deadlines. Our team assists in providing alternative solutions, processing modifications for approvals, and assisting in workarounds by strategically planning with the project team. KW&A leverages its strong background in city government to bring the needed resources to get projects approved quickly and efficiently.
