Construction Inspections

VERTEX offers expert QA/QC services, providing effective planning, site inspection, and monitoring to ensure your completed building meets the expected quality standards.

Quality in construction is paramount, aligning the final product with owner and user needs. Whether you’re an owner, architect, contractor, or manager, quality is the key focus. In the realm of Quality Management, both Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) are essential. VERTEX offers QA and QC services for commercial and residential projects across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. From plan reviews to site inspections, we collaborate closely with clients to ensure cost-efficient and precise fulfillment of their needs.

Balcony Assurance

Comprehensive inspection services for multifamily properties, ensuring compliance with state laws (SB 721 and SB 326). Our expert team delivers detailed reports, proactive evaluations, and repair recommendations. Explore how we exceed standards and manage risks.

Building Envelope Consulting

Our building envelope consultants work alongside engineers, architects, facility managers, general contractors, and building owners to identify and resolve energy, water, or air leaks in exterior walls, roofs, or subgrade waterproofing. VERTEX’s team is well-versed in all aspects of building envelope performance. We ensure that your building enclosures are highly durable and provide outstanding protection from the elements.

Construction Quality Assurance

For developers and builders in the single- and multi-family sectors, a robust Quality Assurance (QA) program helps them achieve their quality standards and manage the risks of construction defect litigation. VERTEX’s team helps clients ensure building code compliance is met and the workmanship of their crews meet their quality goals.

The VERTEX’s ICC-certified inspectors provide crucial constructability analysis and plan reviews before construction begins. We also handle responsive quality control site inspections during the community’s construction phases in line with the project schedule.

Building Commissioning

Building commissioning (Cx) is a systematic process to ensure that a building’s systems perform as designed and that the owner’s efficiency strategies and lifecycle costs are met. VERTEX supplies Cx services for both new construction and existing buildings. Our team will work with your project designers, contractors, and stakeholders throughout the pre-construction phases, as well as during occupancy.

During the pre-construction stage of your project, we will perform a professional documentation review and help in the development of the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) and Basis of Design (BOD). During construction, our Cx experts will verify that the building’s systems are implemented properly, as well as prepare manuals and documentation for maintenance and operations personnel. After occupancy, our Cx specialists can provide additional testing to develop specific reports, such as attaining sustainability certifications.


Construction Loss Control Consulting

VERTEX helps policyholders and insurance firms reduce the risk of construction claims and minimize the severity of those that do occur through the implementation of effective construction loss control programs. Our team performs extensive pre-construction phase assessments and construction site inspections to identify situations or conditions associated with your buildings, projects, and operations that present a risk of loss. We also help ensure they are designed, installed, and managed correctly to prevent costly lawsuits.


Full-Service Construction Site inspections, Quality Assurance & Quality Control

VERTEX offers QA/QC services and extensive site inspections for both commercial and residential construction projects in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. From professional building envelope consulting for both new and existing construction to comprehensive building system commissioning and retro-commissioning services, we carefully listen to our clients and work closely with them to meet their needs.

Page Turn Services

VERTEX offers Page Turn Services, involving a thorough review of the construction documents to identify inconsistencies, errors, or omissions that may impact project costs and schedule. We provide a detailed log of identified items for consideration during plan development. The service also includes reviewing permit plans for compliance with codes, zoning, and ADA/FHA/TAS standards, providing a Design Review Report with commentary, and offering observations on the project’s construction compliance.

Construction Audit Services

VERTEX is often hired to protect our clients’ contracted interests, and ensure contract requirements are being adhered to properly. Typical areas audited include billing, subcontractor costs, schedules and scopes.

Peer Review Services

Freddie Mac often requires third party review of consultants’ reports. Peer Review is a quality control exercise in which the evaluation of professional work is evaluated from an unbiased perspective. It involves subjection of the architect’s work to other experts in the field to evaluate its suitability for issuance to contractors and municipalities. VERTEX offers peer review including audits, plan review, change order review, consultant reports, and schedule review to achieve the following:

  • Identify areas where additional information and coordination is needed.
  • Identify errors or omissions in drawings.
  • Verify sufficient delineation of work.
  • Verify compliance with project requirements.

Quality assurance ensures the delivery of quality products and prevents defects by implementing planned and systematic activities over the course of the project. A QA program consists of rigorous measures that aim not only to ensure construction code compliance and safety, but also to save money and time related to substandard quality on site. It also establishes benchmarks and provides means of continuous improvement. Its steps are carried out ‘before the fact’, not after it. To learn the difference between QA and quality control, read here.

When applied effectively, a QA program provides confidence and assurance that the quality of workmanship and materials incorporated into the project comply with requirements and specifications of the plan.

Crucial benefits of QA include:

Fulfilling quality requirements, codes and regulations

When designing a building, it’s important to identify the requirements of the design and adhere to local and state codes and standards. To achieve quality construction, every builder should realize the significance of investing in a comprehensive QA plan. QA consultants are familiar with construction and building laws, codes, and regulations. They will make certain that the highest industry standards are applied every step of the way.

Ensuring that quality materials are used on site and solid workmanship is achieved

An effective independent quality assurance program encompasses all construction activities and materials so that they requirements and achieve the structure’s performance goals. An experienced QA team can not only perform a third-party review of the plan, but also conduct a site inspection and provide a constructability analysis.
