A multi-million-dollar townhouse, undergoing a multi-million-dollar renovation.
Construction of any kind in New York City is challenging, by definition. This project was particularly so, because the renovation was complex and the building code compliance requirements extensive. The owner had retained an internationally known architect (D ’Apostrophe) and one of the nation’s top five residential builders (Autun Contractors) to do the work. The architect retained Criterium Engineers to provide quality assurance services. Working closely with the architect and the contractor (we had previously collaborated with both), we developed initial specifications and monitored the construction at all phases through its completion, to ensure that the owner’s design and construction quality expectations were met.
You judge a consulting engineering firm in part by the company it keeps. It is significant that these two premier companies (D’Apostrophe and Autun) have chosen to work with us. Criterium Engineers can meet the expectations of the first-time home owners we serve and the most experienced and most demanding clients, because no one expects more from us than we demand from ourselves.
