With any build-out or tenant improvement there are different trades and often times different companies working at once. It’s not a matter of if something will go wrong, but when. It is, of course, less costly to fix these mistakes before they are final rather than when the construction phase is still underway. Let’s take a building improvement like a full waterproofing of your commercial building, which includes work on the roof, windows, walls, drainage and other facets throughout the building. By hiring and using a third party waterproofing inspection team, the owner, architect, contractor, and installer can all be put at ease knowing that another set of eyes and expertise is making certain that everything is up to waterproofing perfection.
A third party inspection team can provide the following insurance to your project:
Design Assistance—Guidance on the best type of overall waterproofing system.
System Review—Provide details on the specifications of all parts involved.
Complete Product Offering—Make certain all parts are compatible with each other.
Job-Specific CAD Details—Precision designs.
Quality Assurance—Provides reports on all matters regarding the build.
Material Installation and Independent Inspection—Assures proper installation to secure manufacturer’s warranty.
Financial Assurance and Contractual Accountability—Reliable material and labor warranty provided by the manufacturer.
Owner’s Insurance—Certain procedures can reduce insurance rates.
Contractor’s Bonding—With fewer repairs, increased bond rating can be expected.
These services have a major impact on the overall well-being of the structure and the others involved in the build.
Owners are provided with a building that is going to have fewer problems with moisture and air intrusion. Furthermore, they can be rest assured that their structure is of near perfection in the waterproofing department.
The minds of architects and engineers can rest easy knowing that their designs are going to be review before being put into action. This allows them the creative freedom to design the most attractive and efficient structure possible.
Ultimately, it takes an entire team working together to get a building project completed properly, on time and on budget. Bringing in independent third party inspectors is a great way to minimize risk, catch mistakes early in the process and to keep the project moving forward. Isn’t that what it is all about?
