Huckabee Helps Bring Dead Sea Scrolls to Fort Worth
July 23, 2012
Huckabee has a team dedicated to working with jurisdictional authorities to expedite the plan review and building permit processes. Over the years, our team has developed outstanding working relationships with multiple Cities and other governmental entities.
Recently, our team was called on to assist the Southwestern Baptist Seminary go through the plan review and permitting processes with the City of Fort Worth to bring the world-renowned Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit to its campus. The Seminary was under a tight deadline to receive the necessary approvals in order to open the much-anticipated exhibit to thousands of patrons this summer.
According to the Fort Worth Star Telegram, “rare doesn't begin to describe the collection of ancient Dead Sea Scrolls and artifacts on display in Fort Worth for just six months. Seven never-before-exhibited fragments will be on display, including biblical passages from Exodus, Deuteronomy, Leviticus, the Psalms, Daniel and more.”
Because of our reputation and relationship with the City, we were able to help the Seminary receive a building permit in just three hours. By contacting the appropriate parties and explaining the uniqueness of this project, the City agreed to person-to-person review of the documents. All required parties listened to the presentation, and their comments and input were incorporated into the documents during the review. Once complete, the documents were signed and sealed by Huckabee as well as the City.
“We are proud of what our team was able to accomplish in such a short amount of time,” said Tom Lueck, architect at Huckabee. “But mostly, we are truly honored to be part of such a significant event for Fort Worth.”
