While it is very important to write clear specifications, design in proper options and ensure the subcontractors carry a proper number in their bids, CODE compliance all comes down to inspection.
Our team of engineers, project managers, surveyors, detailers, inspectors and installation partners has been hard at work honing the skills needed to streamline the complications of seismic retrofitting on your project.
A well-defined stand-alone specification section which states proper code reference information, a method to meet code and a rigid submittal process will ensure seismic bracing is addressed.
Upon a comprehensive review of the documents, design intent and specific building designs, we will provide many ways of value engineering the eventual cost of bracing.
The advent of BIM in the marketplace has a lot of subcontractors worried. But they shouldn’t be. They already have a trusted partner who can help. Let us be your BIM Services Team.
