Kellermeyer Godfryt Hart, P.C. was established in 1985 to provide architectural and structural consulting services to building owners and managers, architects, law firms, developers, governmental agencies, and investment associations. The primary emphasis and expertise of the firm is the evaluation, analysis, and repair of building enclosure systems. Areas of specialization include the investigation, repair, and restoration of building facades, the evaluation and retrofit of waterproofing membranes including both roofing and plaza systems, and the investigation, analysis, and repair of distressed parking garages.
The broad range of experience and expertise available through the KGH professional staff uniquely qualifies the firm to perform thorough surveys and evaluations of architectural and structural components and systems. This expertise is particularly beneficial to both building owners and managers when complying with local facade ordinances, which mandate the periodic inspection and maintenance of exterior wall constructions.
