Our approach is based upon careful preliminary evaluation of existing conditions, research into buildings history, photographic and video documentation, preparation of measured drawings, and an appropriate program of test probes to establish underlying conditions. Our findings are typically incorporated into a report for the client which includes an analysis of existing conditions, prioritized repair recommendations and cost evaluation. From the client's approved scope of work and budget we prepare detailed plans, specifications and cost estimates, file and obtain approval of public authorities having jurisdiction. We assist the client in competitive bidding and contract preparation. During the construction stage our administrative services include site observations and reporting, evaluation of mock-ups and samples, review and approval of shop drawings, change order preparation, payment certifications and punch lists. At the conclusion of the project we assemble all closeout documents (warranties, guarantees, certifications, release of liens, record drawings, etc) in a comprehensive manner both in printed and electronic (CD-Rom) format so as to provide a permanent record of the project
