Theory and Practice. In the early 1980’s, we began to treat measurement of products as a minimum requirement of a design process, and as computer modeling tools became available, these were also quickly incorporated in our consulting work.  Without both of these measurements, we cannot predict success in design efforts.

With the acquisition of millions of dollars in advanced measurement systems for acoustics, AV, lighting, daylighting, thermal comfort and indoor air quality, we now have over three decades of experience in product measurement.  This measurement experience has taught us the value of measurement as well as it has built up a deep intuitional knowledge of how each area of design works, as we have measured many successes and many failures in our lab before the failure becomes institutionalized into a problem product.

Specialties. Since our foray into measurement many years ago, we have learned that most product development projects may provide marginal performance, as there are no standards, and there is no measurement

As a result, we have been providing expert legal assistance in the assessment of product failures for over 30 years, and we have helped our clients to avoid common pitfalls that are made when clients go to vendors for advice, rather than retaining experts.

Philosophy. It is our belief that products which incorporate standards and testing provide a far better basis for occupant satisfaction, and dramatically reduce the risks of design failures on the part of design teams.

Summary. Whether our clients are looking for single discipline testing or comprehensive product development testing in all disciplines, we can help them to reduce their risks and increase their user satisfaction via the use of scientific testing.
