Expertise in hands-on investigation, analysis, and repair or restoration design – for all material types and vintages – allows us to effectively address all aspects of building enclosures. We have substantial experience with properties ranging from modern curtain walls and mid-century hybrid construction, to ornamental historic structures. We can assist clients with an envelope’s structural supports, waterproofing elements, and components such as windows, roofing, plazas and sidewalks.
We evaluate root causes of performance failures and develop solutions that meet the building’s needs and the client’s budget. Our holistic approach includes tackling energy code challenges and determining viable approaches to improving energy performance. We also assist owners in navigating the local agency review process and in developing phasing schemes to minimize impacts on building and site accessibility.
We also have a long history supporting owners in their compliance with local facade ordinances. If you need assistance with New York City’s FISP (formerly Local Law 11) compliance, please contact Gary Mancini at 917.661.7800. If you need assistance with Chicago façade ordinances, please contact Bill Bast at 312.596.2014.
