Code Consulting

Building and fire codes can be complex. Our experienced code consultants are here to help.

Let’s Solve Your Problem

Know Faster.

Codes – particularly the IBC and IFC, with jurisdictional adoptions – can be confusing to navigate. And the implications of poorly understood or missed code provisions can be acute. Our team has decades of experience interpreting and clearly articulating building and fire codes, increasing understanding and minimizing costly oversights.

Don't Wait Until It's Too Late.

Mistakes early in the design and build process can have massive ramifications if they're not quickly identified. The Performance Based team can help you navigate all applicable codes, reducing change orders and conflicts, uncovering opportunities for AMMRs, design improvements, and value engineering opportunities, and streamlining approval and permitting cycles.
