Whether new buildings or gut renovations, prior code or new code, fire or building codes, competing city and state jurisdictions, we have the experience and the research capability to help owners and their architects achieve their design goals in compliance with the myriad of regulations.

Our team draws from our expertise and experience from thousands of past projects, to offer clients solutions to complex regulations of building code, energy code, multiple dwelling and zoning laws.

We provide code and zoning guidance and interpretations that are necessary to operate and build in New York City and similar urban areas across the USA. These specialty interpretations have significant implications to the development and operations of buildings. We understand the specifics of building code, fire code, zoning within the context of city regulations, as well as state laws, such as the “multiple dwelling text”, and how they can impact development.

We are the premier firm recognized for reliable answers served efficiently and with integrity in the areas of code, dwelling laws and zoning.
