Facilities and Modernization

For over 28 years, our building science professionals have provided planning and consulting services for capital improvements and new construction projects. Our clients include housing agencies, builders, developers, modernization and weatherization contractors, architects and engineers. In addition to our energy efficiency inspection and testing services, we provide Green Physical Needs Assessments (GPNA) and Property Condition Assessments. These assessments include very detailed inspections of the interior and exterior of facilities and surrounding grounds, as well as, an extensive cost estimating process. These assessments serve as a basis for short and long term capital planning, financing, and government budgeting. Our company assisted the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in designing the software for the GPNA assessment tool…we can help you use it properly.

Our highly trained professionals provide services for thousands of clients in every structure type and climate zone in the U.S. We develop service programs to support our client’s needs for quality and performance. These services are designed to be customized to allow the client to utilize a program that works best for them. A brief summary of these third party services include:
