We provide a range of services to meet the specific needs of your building envelope renewal and restoration projects. Our services include conceptual design, detailed design, permitting, procurement, contract administration, field review, and project close-out.
Are you looking for a cost-effective opportunity to replace building components with new assemblies that increase comfort and reduce energy? We work with you to evaluate possible improvements, understand payback periods, and research financial incentives. As part of the assessment, design, and construction, we provide testing services to evaluate the building and associated work.
Many of our assessments and investigations result in recommendations for repair or targeted renewal to address the original performance concern. When these come up, we work with you from start to finish to quickly and cost-effectively implement the required change.
For select exterior renewal projects, we offer construction management services to bring you increased control, cost-saving opportunities, and scheduling flexibility. We take care of everything — coordinate contracts with Trade Contractors and material suppliers, provide site supervision to manage the Trades, schedule the work, and manage the safety of the site. Our team manages the budget and schedule to give you a smooth and professional project.
