New Commercial Construction

There are many things to take into account when planning new construction. An often overlooked area is the ground on which your building will stand. If the ground where the proposed placement of the new commercial construction is unstable, then it will end up damaging your building, creating costly repairs and could even cost you clients.

A strong and stable foundation is a critical component to ensuring your building will stand the test of time. Find out if the building site is on stable ground, or if the structure will require underpinning, by making an appointment with one of our Professional Engineers.

Commercial Structural Repair

A crack in your business' foundation can end up costing you more than the foundation repair expense; it can cost you money on lost business while the foundation problem is being repaired.

We understand that construction delays are bad for business. We're dedicated to completing your foundation underpinning on time. Our team of professional foundation repair experts and Professional Engineers will design the best foundation repair solution for your business.


So give us a call at 866-370-4816 to speak with an expert and learn about the structural repair solutions available for your building.

Waterproofing & Moisture Management

A leaky, wet basement or damp commercial crawl space is more than an annoyance; it's costing you money. A wet basement or damp crawl space increases the building's humidity, which costs you more to heat and cool. And the building's wet basement cannot be used for storage or additional office space.

Over time the crawl space and basement humidity will damage other areas of your building, leading to wood rot, sagging floors, mold growth and other structural damage. Learn how you can protect your investment by making an appointment with a commercial waterproofing expert.
