McGinnis Chen Associates, Inc. provides peer review services for waterproofing and building enclosures to several Architecture firms. MCA will review the Architect’s and Consultant’s drawings and specifications and provide redline comments and recommendations to achieve a watertight design. Water intrusion is one of the leading causes of damage to structures and construction-defect litigation. Waterproofing and Building Enclosures are traditionally part of the Architect’s scope. Many Architects choose MCA for peer review to provide quality control and oversight and help reduce the risk of water intrusion for a project.

MCA can provide Peer Review services throughout all phases of the design including Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Documents. The earlier MCA can get involved, the better it is to set the standards for the waterproofing for the project.
