New buildings are being developed at an ever-increasing rate in order to keep pace with expanding populations and to replace existing facilities that no longer meet specific needs. Each year, both private and public owners make significant investments in new projects such as commercial office buildings, retail centers, government buildings, K-12 schools and campuses, or university buildings and facilities. No matter what the end use of the building may be, Interface possesses the broad understanding of such building projects that is necessary to fully evaluate the design and construction issues across all design disciplines and labor trades involved. Failures to properly coordinate the various architectural and engineering designs, as well as the work of the various trades, can manifest in design and construction defects, schedule delays, and cost overruns.
Interface has assisted clients in addressing such issues while the project is ongoing, as well as during mediation, litigation, or arbitration proceedings. Services that Interface commonly provides to building project clients include defect investigation and remediation, construction advisory, critical path schedule analysis, labor productivity analysis, change management consulting, claims preparation and assessment, and expert witness testimony. Representative lists of the building projects in which Interface Consulting has assisted owners, contractors, sureties, design professionals, and attorneys include the following:
