Apollo BBC is a multidisciplinary building consulting firm. Our expertise in Building Science allows us to integrate our services, distinguishing us from typical architectural and engineering consulting companies.
We diagnose problems and make buildings better places in which to live and work. Whether it’s moisture intrusion, historic structure renovation, facade failures, or indoor comfort problems, we are uniquely qualified to diagnose issues effectively. Our expertise in structural and mechanical systems allows us to resolve an extensive range of the most challenging building-related problems. Our clients are diverse and include building owners, contractors, architects, insurance companies, and attorneys.
We're Different From Other A/E Firms
To some, it's amazing how much wall and roof systems are impacted by other parameters such as the building’s air conditioning strategy. To us, it's normal business. We focus on the depth of knowledge required to find out why a building performs or doesn't. Our unique whole-building approach sets us apart.
We aren't bound by the constraints of traditional Designers, Architects, or Engineers (C,M,E&P,). We look at the big picture by integrating the building sciences.
Apollo BBC experts strive to become members of your team, clearly understand your objectives and efficiently work to meet your needs. As such, we understand that the best solution is not always the most expensive and complicated. Even simple solutions in design or construction can provide long lasting benefits.
