Value Engineering and Peer Review
We offer code-based peer review and beyond. Our construction document review includes:
Code based peer review: We have reviewed several high scale projects per various codes requirements such as New York City Chapter 16
Lean Engineering: we check every member in the set and ensure it is cost effective
Constructability: not all the structural systems are easy to build. We offer local proven expertise for the best construction methods.
Areas of Risk: recent drawings could expose the clients to un-noticed risks for safety, budget and schedule. We
Design Completeness: fast-track projects are prone to un-coordinated construction sets that could results in change orders and delays in schedule. We thoroughly review these sets and identify drawings deficiencies that would result in additional claims and costs during construction.
Site resident engineer helps clients with faster design decisions and cutting RFI and shop drawing time. We provide full time site construction site observation.
Structural Due Diligence
If you are purchasing a new property and need expert opinion on the structural status of the premise, we will be glad to be on your team.
Seismic Design and Performance Based Design
For special structures or those located in the high seismic zones, performance-based design is a more robust methodology compared to conventional prescriptive design. It reduces the owner’s risk and may save project costs.
