The Pre-Construction Condition Survey, is a photographic and visual record of the status of each property noting any cosmetic and structural defects, and includes, detailed descriptions of the driveways, walkways, foundation walls, windows, roofs,  and other structural features.

Vibration Monitoring

We perform remote vibration monitoring and reporting to determine impact of construction activities on nearby structures. We summarize the procedure, locations, measurement data, discussion of results, and any exceedances of the specified vibration criterion. 

Construction Site Inspections and Contract Administration

We perform contract administration and site inspection to complete private and public projects. We focus on specifications, standards and safety to deliver a successful project on time and on budget from pre-construction, to end of maintenance period.

Noise Monitoring

We monitor noise sources from facilities' operations to determine the overall level of the noise from the facility. We perform Acoustical Assessment reports to document the amount of disturbance from the facility to the natural environment. This is a requirement under Ontario's Environmental Approval process for all facilities. 

Construction Site Safety Audits

We also perform safety audits to continually monitor, measure, review and document health & safety issues. A safety audit collates all such information, thus enabling the project supervisors to plan, organise and control existing and upcoming works in a safe and efficient manner.

Contract Deficiencies and Dispute Resolution

We review all contractor deficiencies and extra claims along with contract documents to resolve disputes between owners and contractors. We focus on executed contract documents, and hold meetings with parties to achieve best results for everyone, mediate, and avoid costly litigation. 

Project Final Audits

Our project audit provides an opportunity to uncover issues, concerns and challenges during the project. It provides valuable input to the project team to what went well and what needs to be improved both in the specifics of the works and in the forensic financial review of the project costs.
