A Formal Process
KCS has a formal process for the inspection of large projects which includes constructability reviews, pre-construction conferences, coordination meetings, review of work in progress, inspection sign-off, digital record photographs, record as-builts, and early project close-out. Our experience working with most of the large southern California architectural firms has provided us the opportunity to become familiar with a wide variety of construction types.

KCS has also assisted clients in documenting non-compliant installations for claims and project settlement agreements.
