Getting it right is not easy. It takes time and focus to be accurate, comprehensive, and thorough. Our system provides a cat-scan or MRI of the plans to uncover all the project requirements.

Project Feasibility Studies
It is always difficult to decide early on whether or not projects are financially feasible. Studies can be done using our offices historical data and/or an Architects Schematic Design Development.

Project specific Spread Sheets & Material Take offs
Every line, letter, and number on a set of plans equates to a task. These tasks need to be properly compiled and accounted for. With a proper review, costs are covered, projects are successful.
