Learn about our process

Many accessory dwellings and second units fail to get built because of confusing permitting rules, custom design requirements or the difficulty of managing the 45+ people needed to complete the design, permitting and construction. New Avenue solves these problems with a structured process, people, and data to give you an integrated project delivery experience.
