Construction Draw Inspections: During new construction or rennovations, the lender or fanancier of the project requires inspections of the construction phases prior to draw payment to the general contractor and subcontractors. We conduct site visits weekly or monthly according to the schedule of values provided. Accuracy of the contractors' draw estimates are evaluated by line item and unsatisfactory work is reported and rectified. Reports include photos and narrative reports.
Construction Consulting: As an added option to draw inspections, we provide construction oversight of the overall construction site from ground breaking to final inspection, and report of progress or discrepancies to the client on a weekly basis. We will attend meetings with project managers and contractors relavent to the progress of the project. Construction monitoring and consulting includes: phase completion rate, adherance to plans and scope of work specifications, change order review, local building code review, and defects found. Reports include photos and narrative reports.
Construction Dispute Inspections: During, or after, construction and remodeling projects, it's common for disputes to arise between parties, whether you're a general contractor or a subcontractor arguing over monies owed, or the customer disputing incorrect construction practices and deviations from scope of work. Commonly, an attorney is hired to build a case for the plaintiff, or an arbitration service is hired as a referee to settle the dispute. We are the 3rd party consultants who come to your aid by giving our unbiased opinion on building plan specification deviations, and repair or remediation cost estimates. We are the expert witness who calls it as we professionally see it.
Inspection With Repair Cost Estimates: The acquisition of a commercial property is a significant investment. An inspection will provide the purchaser with the information required to make decisions on the components and systems that are at the end of their life or are non-functional. Included is a cost analysis on all defective building components or items at the end of their expected life. A defective roof alone can cost tens of thousands of dollars. The inspection includes a complete survey of property conditions, a complete inventory of systems and installed equipment, and projected remediation or maintenance costs.
