Consulting and Third Party Inspections

Beyond code compliance for occupancy, this package service includes consulting based on the goals of the project.  These could include energy efficiency, value engineering [material or system cost comparison *not sure which of these sounds better], or preventative site assessments.  Our 3rd party inspections can advise on the progress toward the project’s goals.  The inspections can also flag any potential issues that may cause testing failures and costly delays.

Utility Rebates

For some projects, we can also assist with utility rebates through the MassSave New Construction Program.

Chris is driven to help builders promote the full value of their product and to help home owners maximize the full value of one of the largest investments they will make in their lifetime. He is motivated by the cost effective solutions to building health and durability that are not commonly understood or current industry best practices.

“We have been working with Chris for a few years now on all of our new construction projects. We appreciate the level of knowledge and expertise he brings to the job site. ”
