Building Owner FAQs
Building Owner FAQs: What environmental services do you offer Building Owners?
We’re a one-stop shop for all environmental consulting. We support those worried about a sick building, or those who want a healthy building.
We are often hired by the owner or the owner’s representative.
What types of buildings does Healthy Building Science inspect?
What differentiates HBS from the pack?
Our background and expertise in creating healthy buildings, coupled with our knowledge of building science and field-testing services, make us a very unique company offering more value than most “green building consultants” or Industrial Hygienists.
How fast can HBS respond to a request?
We can almost always schedule within a week, and often can do next day site visits.
How long does it take to get a report?
All reports are generally returned within a week, but that depends on lab turnaround times (TAT), if lab analysis is involved. TATs can be expedited for an additional fee. Communicate your desired TAT to our team.
How much does healthy building consulting cost?
Costs vary depending on where the project is located, how large the building is, duration of design-build schedule, experience of other team members, and what services are a priority for the owner.
Have you worked with sensitive client types?
Yes. We have lots of experience working with schools and homes with kids with asthma, or people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), or Electrical Hypersensitivity (EHS). But we also work with healthy groups just wanting to follow best practices.
