We solve building envelope problems.

That is the core of our service and we stay focused on that goal. We want to make our clients’ lives easier by checking building envelope problems off the list of things to worry about.

We’re reinventing building envelope consulting.

Copeland Building Envelope Consulting embraces technology and innovation to deliver exceptional service to our clients.

Your drawings are wonderfully clear.

Judy Oates, Condominium Trustee

We bring extensive experience to the table, but also have a healthy level of skepticism about “the way things are done” and we’re dedicated to tirelessly re-engineering the process of building envelope consulting. We want to improve the experience for our clients, contractors, and other stakeholders in building envelope construction.

Your direct, honest and low-key non-confrontational approach was a breath of fresh air.

Wayne Howe, R.S. Mowery & Sons
