construction consulting – BECx

We help contractors and owners identify unclear design intent requiring a request for information (RFI) and assist architects in responding to RFIs.  We have seen many disputes, and we can often help in their common-sense interpretation unclear language of specifications and contract drawings. You may be interested in Kaz’s old post about Spearin Doctrine.

The typical scope:

  • Bid and submittal reviews, substitution analyses,
  • RFI development and research
  • Waterproofing compatibility research
  • Proactive monitoring of construction in progress,
  • Witnessing QA and QC tests and verification of procedures,
  • Air, water, thermal, and structural testing,
  • Construction dispute resolution,
  • Commissioning of building enclosures (BECx)
  • Construction defect evaluation,
  • Negotiations with contractors,
  • Ownership transition (take-over) assessments,
