ECC FOR ARCHITECTS/ENGINEERS
Exterior Construction Consulting for Architects/Engineers/Consultants
Today’s building owners and investors expect more out of the AEC firms they hire. To be competitive, you need to build the right team from a diverse group of experts. To have a successful project, you need each member of the team to know their role, communicate effectively and deliver quality results on time and on budget.
ECC’s services are designed to support architect firms needing expertise in commercial roofing while controlling costs to keep proposals competitive. We also support engineers or other consultants needing to subcontract a project due to location, schedule conflict and/or additional expertise. Our size allows us to control overhead costs while delivering a personalized experience that leads to a long term relationship.
As RRO’s, you can trust our assessment and findings on all types of roofing systems. Our roof inspections include a ground perimeter walk of the property, overview photos, deficiency identification, repair recommendations, and budgeting.
Everything included in the Roof Inspection along with gathering field measurements, quantities, core samples, and other data needed to properly put together a scope of work and/or estimate.
We will draw the roofing system in CAD software based on the information collected from the Take-off or provided by the contractor. This can include project-specific detail drawings if needed. We can then design a roof system(s) that meet your clients goals with consideration for both manufacturer and code requirements.
Our team is well versed in multiple industry-standard estimating software platforms and can provide accurate estimates in a timely manner. The data needed can be collected by our team or by a collaborative effort with your team.
We can provide third-party observation during construction throughout the entire project or as needed. This observation work includes documenting progress, ensuring specifications and other contract documents are being followed, etc.
ECC’s certified thermographers use infrared technology to determine the extent of moisture intrusion and/or the source of the leaks
ECC can also perform an impedance scan using our Tramex Dec Scanner in situations where thermal imaging cannot be used and/or if the schedule is prioritized.
ECC has extensive experience in the assessment of damage to roofing systems and determining the cause(s). Damage can be the result of material defects, improper installation, or even damage from a weather event (hurricane, tornado, hail storm, etc.).
We offer training sessions with your team members, giving them the knowledge on some of the telltale signs of deterioration & damage to different types of membranes and other roofing systems that will help your clients be better informed of the condition of their facilities.
