Building Envelope Investigation
One of our specialties is building envelope. The deteriorating powers of water intrusion into built structures is truly spectacular, especially when neglected. A buildings "envelope" encompasses all the exterior facing parts of a building, i.e. foundations, walls, windows, doors and roofs.
Give us the opportunity and we are certain to help you determine the source of the intrustion and design a remedial repair capable of halting the deteriotation.
Building Restoration Consulation
Based in New England means the vast majority of our clients own or occupy buildings of significant age. Such structures have intrinsic historic, cultural and emotional value. Buildings of any age require maintenance but the historically relevent ones often need more than just that, they require restoration. With a background in historic preservation we can assess your historic building's needs, itemize and timeline out critical repairs and specify the appropriate restoration techniques using contemporary methods and materials.
When we're done with your historic building it will carry on exuding its own legacy to the neighborhood without compromising its heritage.
Construction Project Management
Construction of any type is a costly endeavor, in both time and monetary value. Laypersons may navigate the construction waters to varying degrees of success. Trust an unbiased party such as ourselves to assist you towards a positive end result. As a construction manager we can work from schematic design cost analysis thru to occupancy, helping you understand and be best equipped to answer the inevitable questions that arise along the way.
We are your advocate, capable of taking your wishes and directing the project team towards the end goal you want to accomplish in built form.
