Building Evaluation & Triage
Comprehensive building evaluations and assessments are a hallmark of how we undertake architectural design. Whether these assessments are conducted in tandem with an identified renovation project, or carried out on a stand-alone basis, the information they provide offers an invaluable tool to a building owner. Our assessments include exterior building ‘envelopes,’ interior conditions, building systems, site conditions and City of Chicago Façade Critical Exams.
Our systematic approach to building evaluations focuses on rapid mobilization, thorough documentation, early identification, prioritized recommendations, comprehensive and creative solutions, and accurate estimates of probable costs. These components allow for informed decisions, easier short- and long-term planning, expedited design schedules, and better project cost controls.
