Construction Loan and Draw Evaluations
For Banks and Lending Institutions we quantitatively evaluate construction values in order for the lender to determine loan viability. During the construction process we observe in-place construction in order to evaluate its value versus requests for periodic construction loan draws. We advise lenders of the various construction regulations to which a borrower must adhere.
Project Reviews, Consultation to Architects and Architect's Clients
We offer support to Architectural Firms or their Clients to review & evaluate architectural documents for clarity and completeness. As a result of our years of experience addressing a multitude of project challenges, we can facilitate communication between a Project Owner and his/her Architect. In addition to project evaluations, we provide Construction Administration Services (CA) for Clients whose Architects don't provide CA.
