We make your home work for you.
Home assessments completed with science-based diagnostics with a return-on-investment reality check. An energy audit will pay for itself and is the best single thing you can do for your home.
Diagnostics and Forensics
Better Building Works will act as a third-party verifier for mysteries large and small – with no conflict of interest – in examining the property in question, identifying the real problem(s), and presenting a definitive report on what needs to happen to make things right.
When you need a trusted navigator guide and verify your objectives are met, whether you are working with another design firm or are ready to build.
Design for New Homes, Renovations and Additions
You can trust that verifiable performance is behind every beautiful design we help you create for your new or existing home.
Project Management & Verification
We will work with you to make sure you get what you paid for. We verify the work is done with accuracy and follow until completion.
Building codes are getting more strict about performance targets. Blower door, fan flows, infrared, etc. Compliance without in-field diagnostics is a fairy tale. Don’t be fooled by visual compliance paths!
