Construction Quality Assurance

VERTEX construction consultants offer Quality Assurance services to developers, contractors and stakeholders.

A well-built building does not happen by accident. Successful builders understand this and operate Quality Assurance programs to ensure their teams build to the highest standards. VERTEX provides highly qualified QA/QC professionals with decades of real-world construction experience to help residential, multifamily and commercial 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 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 stakeholders that their project achieves excellence.


Third-Party Quality Assurance for California 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.


QA/QC Services For Commercial Construction

At VERTEX, we specialize in providing top-tier third-party quality assurance services tailored for mixed-use and commercial construction projects. Our expertise in QA/QC (Quality Assurance/Quality Control) ensures that every project we handle meets the highest standards of building quality and compliance with regulatory requirements. From the planning stage to the final execution, our team offers meticulous oversight, ensuring that all aspects of the construction process align with the designated specifications and industry best practices.

With our robust issue tracking system InSpec, our ICC-Certified team identifies, documents, and provides the construction team timely automated reports to address construction issues in a systematic manner. Our automated reports provide comprehensive insights, including detailed logs of inspections, noted non-compliance issues, and lets subcontractors document corrective actions undertaken. Our proactive approach helps ensure quick resolution of problems, keeping projects on schedule and within budget.


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.
