Exterior Building Design & Specifications provide the analysis, design, and
project administration services required to obtain the most appropriate and
cost-effective solution to our client’s building exterior problems.  The
complexity and number of potential solutions available to address deficiencies
and/or failures of exterior building waterproofing systems makes
selecting a cost feasible solution a daunting task.  IRS Exterior
Building Design & Specification services provide building owners and
managers with proven, cost efficient solutions.  IRS provides its clients
with a diagnoses of the deficiencies, then offers multiple solutions,
balancing cost, effectiveness, longevity and aesthetics.



  • Research & Diagnostics: 
    A complete analysis of the existing system is completed to define the
    scope of work required, including confirmation of the diagnosis and development of methods to fact
    check potential solutions.

  • System Selection: 
    Potential systems are reviewed and a selection made after weighing our
    clients input, management objectives and our analysis of the existing system.
     IRS then provides an opinion of probable cost to execute the
    finalized, agreed upon project scope.

  • Bidding Documents: 
    Detailed project specifications are developed for the purpose of securing
    competitive bids on the selected system.  As to be
    built projection drawings are provided to reduce costly change orders
    during construction.  IRS specifications are developed
    to provide a competitive bidding situation among contractors and material
    manufacturers.

  • Contractor Selection: 
    Our involvement with a variety of exterior building systems provides us with a
    good selection of contractors in most of the country.  IRS can assist our
    client in selecting a group of qualified contractors to bid on the finalized
    project scope.

  • Pre-Bid Conference: 
    For each project, a representative of IRS will conduct a pre-bid meeting to
    review the project scope, including miscellaneous site conditions and
    client requirements with the prospective bidders and a client
    representative.  This meeting ensures an understanding of the project
    documents by on-site personnel and the bidders.

  • Pre-Construction Meeting: 
    For each project, a representative of IRS will conduct a pre-construction
    meeting with the contractor’s foreman and the client representative to review
    job-site conditions and project scope, project documents in order to clarify
    and resolve any questions before the start of construction.

  • Job Progress Observations: 
    Our involvement in this phase of the project varies from weekly to full-time
    reviews, depending on the complexity of the project, the contractor
    involved, and the needs and interests of our client.

  • Observation for Final
    Approval: 
    Every project is reviewed by a qualified
    representative of IRS prior to recommending final payment. This is not in
    lieu of a manufacturer’s warranty inspection, where applicable.
