Step 1:

Perhaps the most critical step in the process, Discover includes the evaluation, testing, exploration, excavation, and observation of existing building enclosures to develop an accurate condition assessment and inventory of multi-family building systems. This step frequently includes forensic investigation to determine the roof of facility problems.

  • Project Planning
  • Exploratory Assessment & Inspection
  • Condition Evaluation
  • Performance Auditing & Testing
  • Infrared Moisture Scanning
  • Forensic Investigation


Step 2:

The Plan phase moves into the analysis of discovery data in order to determine the most effective path forward for a particular project or comprehensive program.

  • Reporting
  • Budget & Capital Planning


Step 3:

During the Solve phase, our team of professionals collaborate with the client to develop the best and most practical design solutions for the building’s repair, restoration and/or remediation.
