During the pre-construction phase for every project, Cardinal analyzes the extent to which the design of the building facilitates ease of construction, subject to meeting the building’s design and operations requirements on time and under budget, and ensuring the building’s performance at the optimal level.
Construction analysis is a checklist process where every component of a building, including the foundation, HVAC system, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and safety systems, is evaluated for its robustness, appropriateness, and aesthetic.
For example, our team will evaluate the foundation according to local engineering guidelines to ensure it will support the building and surrounding soils. The exterior siding material, whether brick, cement fibre board or another material, is evaluated for its weather-resistance and aesthetic. Windows and insulation are evaluated to maximize energy efficiency in addition to noise mitigation.
Our team’s expertise in construction analysis is vital to prevent errors, delays, and cost overruns.
