SBSA’s experience has been gained with Edward L.

Our clients include attorneys, insurance companies, builders, developers, homeowner associations (HOA’s), facility and property managers, buyers, sellers, and owners.

SBSA’s experience allows us to understand how to prioritize the issues, determine the repair and rehabilitation work based on the degree of risks and potential future damages while considering budgetary constraints. Then SBSA will work closely with the owner(s) and repair contractor to get the job done right with thorough repair designs and quality oversight.

The Solutions Before, Solutions After philosophy emerges during design, construction or use; defects occur resulting in property damages, delays or disputes and the need for expert analysis in determination of feasible solutions to the problems. SBSA provides solutions to such problems by identifying, analyzing the impact, providing design to correct the issues, and when requested providing owner’s services for quality assurance during the repairs.

Today, SBSA, Inc. has over 40 employees ranging from technical staff, specialists, engineers, architects and construction managers who provide professional services encompassing the entire span of a building’s life-cycle from inception through rehabilitation.
