Our Company at a Glance:

Our architectural firm specializing in building envelope consulting. We consult on new and existing buildings, provide contract administration services, quality assurance and diagnostic fenestration testing, and construction litigation support. The firm operates primarily in California, but we also work on projects in Hawaii and other locations. Our office is in San Rafael, California.

Our Services Include:

Building Envelope Design: We work for owners, architects, and contractors, providing building envelope and waterproofing design for both new and remedial construction. We recommend and specify materials and systems, develop details for those systems, and write technical specifications.

We remain very involved during the construction phase, verifying that materials and systems are installed according to the details and specifications, and perform as expected.

We pride ourselves on understanding the limitations and capabilities of building materials and enjoy designing practical and effective solutions for both new and remedial construction. We interface with manufacturers' representatives, work with them to stay current on today's materials, and have attended contractor training seminars. We are experienced in construction, which translates to working well with contractors.

We have worked on a wide range of building types including multi-family, commercial, and residential; much of our work is high-end residential. We often work as the prime architect on projects such as cladding repair and replacement and re-roofing.

Remediation: Unlike designing waterproofing for new construction, remedial work often requires that an investigation first take place in order to determine the mode of failure and the extent of damage. This process can involve methodical testing and invasive exploration. We enjoy the problem solving process that is required to diagnose a failing construction assembly. We also particularly enjoy ultimately fixing the building and improving its envelope performance.

The information attained during the investigation phase assists in defining the required scope of repairs. Because we are often working with partial envelope repairs, significant challenges are presented in determining how best to integrate new and existing work and in the sequencing required to achieve the desired results.
