Are you looking to start a new project or renovation?
Any construction or modification needs to meet applicable construction, electrical and fire codes. The specific codes that apply to your project will be determined by your scope of work.
For example, you will need to follow the Electrical Code if you are working with electrical wiring. If you are installing new exterior walls, you will need to comply with Building Code under Construction Codes. Additionally, you may also have to follow fire and life safety codes.
Our team can help you identify the codes that you need to implement based on the nature of your work. We can educate you on all nuances and implications so that your project doesn't face any difficulty in getting the certificate of occupancy.
You can rely on our architects and engineers to create an efficient design that follows all codes and standards laid down by regulatory agencies. Our team can help you design commercial, industrial and residential properties which sail past regulatory inspections and get quick approvals from the authorities.
It's wise to involve us as early as possible in the design process so that we can meet your objectives while complying to applicable codes. We create highly functional designs with industry best practices that exceed your expectations and adopt necessary codes and standards.
Our team also reviews existing plans to find out compliance issues related to building and fire codes. We help you take corrective measures by creating a fully compliant design addressing the current discrepancies.
Alternative Design Solutions
Most buildings will be able to comply with codes without any problems. But special constructions like complex and state-of-the-art projects may find codes limiting their design flexibility and aesthetic intent.
We deliver effective solutions based on alternative design approaches that help you create a unique, one-of-a-kind project. Our engineers use alternative design techniques such as performance-based design to ensure that codes never get in the way of your creativity and vision.
It's crucial that all construction work is carried out following the plan to ensure code compliance. Any changes during construction that deviate from the codes will result in additional work and expenses.
We recommend you to work with our approved contractors so that we can guarantee a zero-change work order. Our engineers will stay on the site and adopt strict quality control procedures to ensure every inch of your construction is in accordance with the approved plan.
Our construction administration makes sure there are no deviations that result in code violations.
Audits and Inspections
We offer complete audit and inspection services for building and fire codes. Our adept inspectors will make a comprehensive evaluation of your building, building components and systems, services and everything in order to determine if there are any violations.
Based on our inspection we will prepare a list of services you need to carry out to make your project code compliant. Our inspections can help you identify violations on time so that you can correct them before FDNY or DOB inspections for full compliance.
Ad-Hoc Filing and Expedited Approvals
You will need to file applications with the DOB or FDNY and get their permit before you can begin construction. We offer ad-hoc filing and approval service for getting your work permit or certificate of occupancy. Our team determines the right permits to file based on your plan and helps you with the entire filing process.
We will collect all necessary information, prepare documentation, fill out application forms and submit them with respective agencies. Our team also consists of registered filing representatives who can help you expedite your approval process and get your permits quickly.
We also handle code violations and offer corrective solutions to legalize your construction with the least possible changes.
