In our role as subconsultants, our architect and engineer clients rely not only on our technical expertise and underlying understanding of the materials and assembly issues but also on our ability to collect the data in a structured, readily interpretable format. The data may ultimately be used to communicate existing conditions and repair strategies with the building owner, the contractor, insurance and financial interests as well as municipal agencies that may be concerned with enforcement of building facade ordinances. Our primary concern is increasing the level of understanding between the owner, design professionals and contractors.
