• Building Envelope Consultants and Scientists

Commercial properties vary in complexity and organizational management; however, they all seek to provide an efficient environment for tenants and businesses to thrive. BECS understands the needs of commercial property owners and managers, who have to track many moving parts. We have the experience to integrate into project teams and work with the owners and managers to develop a customized solution to repair or enhance their structures. Through a BECS partnership, our clients can rest assured that BECS is part of the team.

From our investigations and assessments, BECS will provide our clients with options, evaluate various pros and cons and risk management for those options, and provide a cost estimate for the repairs to be completed. Additionally, BECS can work with our clients’ budget to develop a project plan that makes sense for our clients through project phasing, project delivery of design-bid or design-build, discuss the future maintenance cycles to building longevity and service life, and estimated return on investment timelines for performance enhancements.

BECS assists our commercial clients with repurposing/repositioning, historic requirements for reuse or rehabilitation, due diligence surveys prior to selling or purchasing properties, and provide estimated capital expenditure needs for the duration of the building’s service life.
