• Architectural Specifications
    Our specifications are geared towards two of the toughest audiences likely ever to use them: experienced public bid contractors that are well-versed in converting documentation deficiencies into change orders, and the 30-year-old architect who’s never before participated in construction contract administration. Consequently, regardless of who uses them, our specifications better preserve your design and strengthen your position once construction is under way. We’re confident you won’t regret the extra effort we put forth once you’ve put our documents to the test.

  • Door Hardware Consulting
    The best door and hardware solutions require vigilant team coordination during the design and documentation phases, and comparable coordination between the manufacturers and installers during installation. And nobody is more vigilant than us. Our uninterrupted involvement on your projects during design and through construction brings with it not only the sort of top-notch coordination you need, but also adds a layer of rigorous quality assurance, which when combined together produce better, more cost-effective door and hardware installations for design professionals, building owners, and end users.

  • Elevator Specifications
    Elevators are expensive, complex, long-lead items that require you to really know what you’re doing before taking them on. Because of our long-standing relationships with multiple elevator consultancies, we’re able to deliver quality elevator specifications comparable to those prepared by your elevator consultant. We don’t offer elevator consulting as a service, and the elevator specifications we provide don’t replace the benefits of retaining an independent elevator consultant. But for those projects with only a few elevators making a limited number of stops, we do provide a cost-effective alternative to manufacturer-prepared specifications.

  • Design Visualization
    Honing rough ideas, fine tuning, re-organizing, and then sketching them over and over until a story begins emerge; creating images as visual triggers to spark more ideas and even more images. These can be the most arresting parts of the design process, and sometimes the most intimidating as well, not to mention complex, time-consuming, and costly when not approached accordingly. That is until now. Confident that any problem can be made clearer with a picture, we bring the simplicity and immediacy of drawing and sketching to you, on-site, at your location, live and in real-time. And along with you, right before your eyes in a workshop setting, we produce imagery that empowers you to discover and clarify your ideas, and to clarify those ideas for other people, helping everyone discover something new for themselves along the way.

  • Roofing, Waterproofing, and Forensics
    As goes the building envelope, so goes the architect. Few projects and even fewer design professionals can avoid the repercussions of this maxim. Air infiltration, water leakage, condensation, early deterioration, product failures – these problems are all repetitive, predictable, and preventable. Consequently, we work at providing you with every opportunity to avoid such expensive and risky complications on all of your projects. Amidst ever-increasing complexity in modern building envelope design, we offer reliable, proven consulting services covering in-depth all aspects of the exterior enclosure, including weatherizing and waterproofing, forensic investigations, expert witness opinions, and site inspection services.
