McGinnis Chen Associates Inc. provides a wide variety of services related to building enclosure consulting. McGinnis Chen Associates tailors our services to each individual client and project’s needs.
Firstly, we meet with the Client to discuss the project’s history and needs and become familiar with the project’s documents or site as needed. McGinnis Chen Associates Inc then provides a proposal outlining the services and deliverables for each project. This leads to the discovery phase which can include investigation, forensic testing, research, reviewing of project documents, and project team discussions. Then we will provide recommendations and a Basis of Design for the building enclosure components for your project. McGinnis Chen Associates Inc. can further develop and refine that design and then will assist with the bidding, plan check, and permitting phases of the project. Finally, McGinnis Chen Associates Inc. believes heavily in the need for oversight during the construction and installation phase. McGinnis Chen Associates Inc, recommends extensive site visits and reports during the construction phase to help avoid costly miscommunication or installation defects.
