Large or small, every project developed in Tucson and the surrounding communities has TED and Lisa Bowers eliminating the obstacles and acting as the liaison for and between the design team and the reviewing agencies. After working for Pima County Development Services Lisa watched the customer struggle to navigate through the ever changing review process known as Permitting and vowed to change the industry. She acquired a small company struggling to maintain a client base in permitting and turned the business around into now maintaining hundreds of clients and still growing fifteen years later. Lisa has become known as a powerhouse between her clients and the many various municipal officials making sure to know everything they know including all adopted Building Codes, Ordinances and Design requirements so the shovel can hit the dirt. In 2011, Bowers teamed up with Jim Campbell creating Tucson Expediting and Development and cornering the market by offering her professional services with a Developer twist. Many have tried to emulate Lisa’s business model and all have failed.
