Architects can rely on LaForce for expert technical advice and in-depth knowledge of Division 8 (Openings), Division 10 (Building Specialties), and Division 28 (Electronic Safety and Security). We offer specification writing, AIA-accredited Continuing Education classes, and consultation services.
Our consultants are knowledgeable in building codes and standards including International Building Code (IBC), ANSI A117.1, NFPA 80 and 101, and municipality-specific requirements. We are comfortable working with all major brands while considering budget, design, and existing components when preparing a project. We can also integrate door, frame, and hardware information directly into the building’s BIM model.
