Construction Quality Assurance

VERTEX construction consultants offer residential Quality Assurance services to homebuilders and developers in California.

A well-built home does not happen by accident. Successful builders understand this and run Quality Assurance programs to ensure their team builds to the highest standards. VERTEX provides highly qualified QA/QC professionals with decades of real-world construction experience to help home builders and multifamily developers achieve this goal.

Our ICC-certified inspectors provide a second set of trained eyes on every project. VERTEX’s consultants also bring with them lessons learned through forensic investigation and failure analysis on hundreds of residential building projects. This unsurpassed level of expertise allows us to be a proactive and trusted partner for builders’ quality management initiatives at every stage of a project, from preconstruction, through project completion. Our mission is to bring peace of mind to builders that their project achieves excellence.


Third-Party Quality Assurance for Homebuilders

VERTEX third-party QA inspectors are preferred by some of the nation’s most respected community and multifamily developers. As an unbiased pair of eyes, our services are designed to augment existing construction quality assurance programs to help builders achieve their best work and manage the risk of construction defect claims. Our service achieves the QA provider limited immunity requirements of California’s SB800 and our firm is vetted and approved by major insurance carriers.

Prior to construction, our experienced team can provide plan reviews and constructability analysis. During the course of construction, we provide responsive quality control site inspections catered to the project’s schedule. From pre-pour foundation inspections to finish work, our team reviews, and documents the building’s critical and high-risk components, providing the extra assurance they are done correctly and the risk is managed.

Our industry’s leading QA documentation system InSpec gives superintendents and project managers real-time reports and issue tracking. So when VERTEX inspectors step off the job site, the construction team can get to work addressing items right away. At the end of the project, builders have a thorough track record of everything built right and missed details caught and resolved.


CA Title24 and HERS Compliance Services

As building codes evolve and expand, VERTEX provides homebuilders and developers the expertise to handle their compliance testing and evaluation needs. Our construction quality assurance team has Certified Energy Analysts and H.E.R.S Raters who can provide verification and documentation for all types of residential projects in California. Our team helps take care of the paperwork so homebuilders can do what they do best. The services include Title24 compliance analysis, HERS inspections, EnergyStar Documentation, LEED Certification documentation, and CAHP and NSHP rebate program documentation.


Balcony Assurance

VERTEX has a team of experts in Elevated Exterior Elements (EEE) across the US.  EEE are common accessways and amenities in multi-family properties, and multiple states have passed laws to require periodic inspection of EEEs for apartments (SB 721) and condos (SB 326).

VERTEX provides apartment owners, property managers, and community associations EEE Inspection services that help stakeholders manage risk and achieve compliance with California’s laws. Read more about this work here.
