To Whom It May Concern: “I was having a problem getting the City of Austin to issue new building permits after I Foreclosed on a Condo. project. The original permits were issued prior to McMansion but expired prior to finishing the project. In order to continue we were required to go before the board of Adjustment for a waiver. After talking to David about the situation and his ideas for solution I retained DCi. His professionalism and his knowledge of the City process were impressive. He developed a plan and put it into operation. Shortly (time is relative in dealing with the City of Austin) we received approval from the Board of Adjustment to continue the permit process without meeting the McMansion rules. I have full confidence in David and will use him again if the need arises.

David helped me with a complicated permit for a renovation to convert (an illegal triplex) to a duplex. He was knowledgeable and responsive to questions, he talked with city staff in regard to code enforcement, gave me a good assessment of the process, and secured the permit. As the project has continued toward completion he has made himself available for inspection issues, and has provided insight and answers. Because of his experience and personal knowledge of the (City of Austin’s) Development Review process, I highly recommend him for any building permitting issues with the city of Austin.

David helped us get variance approval for our residential project. His initial consult helped us decide to move forward with the variance process. David was professional and courteous, and always quick to respond to phone messages, emails, texts, etc. He would make a point to keep us updated on his progress even when we didn’t have an active question for him. David also acted as a buffer between potentially disagreeable neighbors and was even able to get them on our side in the end. David’s consulting was a worthwhile investment.

David Cancialosi helped navigate the platting process much quicker that I could ever have done alone, shaving weeks off the process. I am quick to recommend David’s company for anyone working through the City of San Marcos development process

Having already experienced trying to get a from the city for a detached carport and unsuccessfully going to the variance board, the mere thought of going down to the city permit office again was unconscionable. I was so lucky I found David and DCI Permitting & Land Consulting. David was extremely professional, filled out the permit application for me, made sure he and I were on the same page in terms of the project scope, and completed the task in record time. Thanks just does not explain how grateful I am for his expertise.

ZIF Holdings, Inc. retained David to modify a restrictive covenant placed on our property almost 40 years ago. There was significant opposition from the neighborhood association for over 6 months, but David did not give up and fought to the very end. He represented our interests at several neighborhood meetings, city staff meetings, and before city of Austin Planning Commission and City Council meetings. Throughout the process he established and maintained relationships with contacts at all levels in order to get the desired approval from City Council. In the end, his hard work and dedication was crucial – the neighborhood group voted to support our request. If you are considering a zoning change in Austin, you need David on your team.

To Whom It May Concern, David Cancialosi and I worked together on a residential project that required detailed knowledge of the permit review process, and the people involved. Navigating the City of Austin’s permitting center, while complying with new rules such as the McMansion Ordinance is no simple task. David, however, possesses the knowledge of code requirements and can-do attitude to reduce lag time often encountered downtown. His ability to coordinate multiple tasks and work through details in a focused manner resulted in swift approval of my client’s project. I can confidently recommend DCI’s services to other professionals who are seeking a steady and experienced partner in the permitting process.

David’s knowledge of the City of Austin’s permitting process proved to not only be invaluable, it was complimented by his reliable follow up, professionalism and acuity. He was hired after attempts to navigate the residential permitting process resulted only in frustration and time lost on the project. David visited our job site, walked through scope of the job with us, and within a week, had our permit approved. The process, which was described by an experienced, out of state contractor as “daunting,” was navigated quickly and effectively by David. I highly recommend David, and will in all certainty hire him again as a consultant for future projects.

David was recommended by a local business that was similar to the one I was proposing to open. Upon hiring David he performed due diligence that resulted in a clear understanding of a complex site planning process that we needed to achieve prior to implementing our mobile vending site. He researched various parking, driveway, site plan, and building permit information in order to determine the absolute best course of action necessary to move forward. If you are considering seeking permits for your new business I highly recommend David and the DCI Team before building anything. His experience and professionalism will save you time, money, and frustration in the end!
