Why Choose Us
FOR WHATEVER YOU NEED…
As we’re sure you know building inspection and site testing, in California or anywhere else, can be a highly complicated matter. We can eliminate some of that complexity for you, whether it’s by undertaking a comprehensive inspection on your behalf, or by addressing only the issues that you’ve outlined in your consultation.
We have a full catalogue of building inspection and testing services that we offer, and we invite you to look at our Services page as you thinking about what you might have to plan for during the life of your construction project.
As you learn more about us, we hope you’ll determine that we’re the company that is best suited to address every one of those issues. And if so, we’re confident that you’ll come back to us for similar services during all your future Southern California building projects.
A CLIENT ORIENTED COMPANY…
We understand that different developers have different ways of work. And while some may meticulously plan out every detail of a building project before moving forward, others proceed based on a simple plan and only account for inspection and testing when circumstances dictate. Whatever category you fall into, we’re equally happy to work with you.
Many of our past clients have partnered with us at the earliest stages of planning and directed us to carry out soil laboratory analysis and building material strength tests before they’d even thought about breaking ground. Others have called us while searching frantically for a Southern California inspections and testing company that could help them to quickly fulfill legal requirements. Still others have retained us for ongoing quality control inspections throughout the life of the project.
We’re equally happy to work with all of these clients, and we’re proud to report that regardless of why they’d called us in the first place, many Southern California developers have returned to us time and again for subsequent inspection and testing needs.
