You spend a lot of time and money focused on what goes into your buildings, taking for granted the walls and roof that protect everything in the building. Those protective walls, including your roof, make up the building envelope, and Hollon+Cannon Group (HCG) has been focused on designing better building envelope solutions since 2009. The building envelope industry contains thousands of products and many ill-informed or biased sources. In today’s design world, having a knowledgeable and thorough professional such as HCG is a must to assist you in both technically and fiscally responsible choices. As roofing and waterproofing consultants, HCG works with architects and building owners to provide a wide variety of services designed to help clients from the initial investigation through final construction and beyond.
Hollon+Cannon will evaluate existing roofing and other building envelope systems to determine deficiencies and the most cost-effective remedies for any items found needing attention. A comprehensive report containing written descriptions and photographic documentation of all suspect conditions is developed and delivered to the client.
Successful and cost-effective construction relies upon appropriate communication of a project design by the designer to the contractor and other project participants. From project conception, through design and construction, to facility management, effective communication of the project requirements depends largely on having complete and coordinated construction documents.
With the wide variety of roofing materials and unlimited application conditions in today's market it is difficult to maintain a working knowledge of acceptable design and installation practices. Add to that, the responsibility of designing and overseeing the entire building, and it is easy to see why more and more Design Professionals are enlisting the services of Hollon+Cannon.
As part of HCG's contract administration services, our experienced professionals will guide the client through the bidding / negotiation phase of selecting an appropriate contractor. We also lead pre-construction, construction and post-construction meetings specific to our role on the project, doing our part to ensure the project is on-schedule and the contractor is performing per the contract documents.
QC consists of procedures used to determine whether completed items meet the required quality. Features, characteristics, and functional performance as measured and compared with contract requirements. Essential to the overall success of a project, periodic QC site visits performed by a qualified professional help the Owner to realize the full potential of the designed building system.
Performing regular roof inspections helps Owners keep their roofing warranties in compliance, and helps extend the lives of the roofs by identifying problems before they become catastrophic. Finding and repairing a leak soon after it occurs can prevent costly damage to the insulation and roof decking, not to mention the contents of the building.
