ICS provides hands on assistance in the preparation of conceptual design by working hand in hand with the project architect and project team members. ICS involvement can vary from review of conceptual design proposals prepared by project Architect, to preparation of  comprehensive 3D details for incorporation in the Construction Documents. 

Coordination of the exterior building envelope with the entire project team, including other building trades from the early stages onwards, can result in considerable cost and time savings for the project.


ICS is capable of assisting in the decision making from the schematic design stage to integrate materials and technologies into complete systems that allow for compounded energy efficiency and increased building life cycle.


ICS is able to expertly witness, perform and develop a variety of testing procedures in coordination with reputable testing agencies, including but not limited to pressure differential performance testing, impact resistance testing, thermal testing, acoustic testing, site water testing, as well as a variety of other field and factory testing procedures

ICS can assist in the preparation and evaluation of quality control procedures to be adhered to during shop manufacturing and field installation, so as to ensure that critical waterproofing sealants, gaskets, metal joinery, flashings and interface details are installed per the contract documents ensuring that the exterior enclosure systems meet or exceed the specified performance criteria. 

Once a project goes underway, ICS frequently performs inspections at the contractors facilities to ensure that the quality and performance standards are met. ICS has performed a significant amount of shop inspections at Contractors Facilities world wide,  including factory locations in USA, Canada, India, UAE, Mexico, Italy, Germany, Poland, Malaysia and China.

If required ICS can also perform field inspections once actual construction commences on site.  Detailed Inspection reports are issued for every inspection or at frequent intervals for ongoing projects. Testing, Inspection and Quality Control are worth while investments in the future of a trouble free building.



ICS  is also providing General Construction Management, Design and Coordination Services for Residential Projects, from custom single family residences to substantial sized multi family housing projects. 


Our approach to any project, big or small,  is very detail oriented, from the early planning stages through final completion. 


"Plans are nothing, Planning is everything" are wise words once spoken by Dwight D Eisenhower, and we could not agree more. Meticulous planning is the key to success for every project.


Our Design input is generally leaning towards a contemporary approach, utilizing advanced production and (modular) construction methods, that can provide time and or cost savings to the client
