Design Services

CMC provides “Design Review” services to architects, engineers, general contractors, construction managers, developers and owners by routinely reviewing the initial design concept and continuing through the development of construction documents with specific focus on roofing, waterproofing and building envelope systems intended to provide moisture penetration resistance, weatherproofing integrity and overall performance of exterior cladding systems.  Each project is individually evaluated to ensure the building functions according to anticipated building dynamics, regional weather and other geographical influences.  Accordingly, CMC focuses on applicable specification sections frequently ranging from Divisions 3 through 10 followed by providing comments to ensure critical aspects such as system performance, quality assurance, warranties, materials, installation and field quality control requirements are properly specified.  Review of architectural drawings is also performed with comments provided via “redline markups” as required to ensure feasible constructability, material compatibility and long-term performance requirements are accurately illustrated.  Additionally, CMC provides assistance during the bid evaluation, bid award recommendations and during value engineering exercises.

CMC provides “Construction Document Development” which includes specifications, architectural drawings and details tailored for individual project requirements related to roofing, waterproofing, and building envelope systems intended to provide water penetration resistance, weatherproofing integrity and overall performance of exterior cladding systems.  Additionally, CMC is highly experienced in renovation design which includes the necessary “due diligence” field investigating and reviewing record information to ensure all aspects of existing construction is evaluated, to determine if active warranties are in place and special consideration is given to future building plans and the project budget.  Additionally, CMC provides bid evaluation, bid award recommendations and evaluates proposed value engineering when requested by our clients.
