Doing Business divides the process of building a warehouse into different procedures within the questionnaire and requests information on the time and costs to complete each of them. These procedures include, but are not limited to:

  • Obtaining the plans and forms requested by architects and engineers to start the design of construction plans (for example, typographic analysis, maps, soil tests),
  • Obtaining and presenting to the authorities all the specific documents of the work project (for example, building plans, lot maps and urban certificates).
  • Hiring external supervisors, engineers or inspectors (if necessary).
  • Obtaining all authorizations, licenses, permits and certificates.
  • Presentation of all the necessary notifications to start and conclude the construction.
  • Request and receive all required inspection visits (except if completed by a private external inspector).

Doing Business also records procedures for obtaining installation of water and sewer services. The procedures necessary to register the property are also taken into account, so that it can be used as collateral or transfer of ownership.

In order to be able to compare the data between the different economies, certain aspects of the company, the warehouse work project and the installation of basic services are assumed.
