We help our clients by investigating and identifying the data needed for a complete and clear understanding of properties, their development potential, and their constraints. Upon completion of our investigation process, we provide our clients with a detailed report regarding the property. These reports are often used as part of risk assessment, bank financing, property acquisition, and/or development processes of commercial real estate personnel, individual building owners, developers, and their representatives. 

Our Research services include:

Code research is typically handled by the designer or architect of record for a given project.
