Construction inspection

Tri-State Mall Building Evaluation, Montague, NJ

KC evaluated the condition of the building and assessed steps to take if corrective actions were required. KC also inspected the existing concrete masonry wall that was reported to have a gap between two structures. Based on our inspection, we determined that the two structures had been built at different times and the gap was a result of freeze and thaw cycles. KC recommended the gap be filled to prevent air and water infiltration. The structure was determined to be structurally sound.

Otisville Elementary School, Otisville, NY

The original Otisville Elementary School was constructed in 1914. It has served as a school for varying age groups throughout the years. The Town of Mount Hope acquired the building in 2009 from the Minisink Valley School District in exchange for land to build a new elementary school on. Upon acquisition, the Town of Mount Hope had yet to decide how to best utilize the property. To assist the Town in determining the best use for the building, KC provided consulting services for engineering design, cost estimating, possible uses, reporting, and construction inspection services.
