WHAT TO EXPECT

Building Envelope Investigations

We perform visual and invasive investigations of the building enclosure and provide photo documentation of existing conditions with the help of thermal imaging, window testing, moisture readings, and other analysis. Learn more about the importance of envelope studies.

Writing a Scope of Repair
Our engineers and architects will design a clear and complete scope of repair for the project so you know exactly what needs to be done. A scope of repair is important for the contractor bid process.
Project Documents and Specifications
We provide detailed project documents such as inspection reports, scope of work, bid forms, payment procedures, meeting agendas, building details, and progress reports so you can find everything in one place.
Design

J2 is a licensed architecture and engineering firm in three states. Our registered design professionals and full-service design support staff provide stamped drawings and details for many types of building enclosure repairs and remodels. This also includes realistic design renderings of what your building will look like and permits for the construction details in compliance with public requirements.

Bid Reviews
J2 provides an independent opinion to help you consider contractor bids to ensure good value, work experience, and other important factors to protect your buildings and residents. We will also attend contractor interviews and additional meetings as necessary to assist you in selecting the best contractor for the job.
Construction Meetings
J2 attends construction meetings and communicates with the client to keep them informed of progress, budget, and design updates. We maintain contact with the contractor on a daily or weekly basis to ensure your work is getting done with the utmost quality and efficiency.
Answer Questions
During the repair process, the contractor needs guidance on discovered conditions and the best way to install components. J2 provides expert guidance and will answer requests for information (RFIs), review submittals and mockups, and document the changes for a final record.
Field Reviews
Likely the most valued service that J2 provides is on-site field reviews during construction. We perform weekly site walkthroughs to document construction progress and ensure quality workmanship.
Review Pay Applications
J2 reviews Pay Application requests and Change Order requests from contractors and advises the client on payment approval. (We make sure you get what you pay for!)
Closeout Documents
At the end of a project, J2 prepares all scope of repair documents, engineering reports, submittals, construction contracts, meeting minutes, field reports, pay applications and change orders, punch lists, and a final summary letter.
