First, the project was brought to us in order to comply with a code enforcement violation, not just remodeling, Illegal remodeling. Yes as-builts, of the illegally completed improvements, which included converting an original half story space into an entire upper floor with no permits, no drawings, no wisdom nor regard to any codes. And this construction work was done all the way through sheetrock before being caught. We think this surely illuminates the situation more clearly.
We were brought on board to show a path to bringing those unapproved improvements into compliance, along with correspondence to the building official and with the consultation and input of a structural engineer. Ultimately we arrived at a viable proposed solution.... which we presented the path with means and with methods to overcome the code violations throughout the structure. After the client consulted with the very same contractor, they determined the work to retrofit the deficient work was too difficult and too expensive. And as it appears, was in fact too difficult to do it correctly even the second time. Well, they decided to cancel the project.
So to our defense of our good reputation, we are being attacked now by a disgruntled client for making poor choices and judgement. Read into this very common scenario as you wish, but please temper any rush to judgement as we are professionals with integrity and a standard of knowledge & professionalism. We provided this service to the best of our abilities.. And we are in process of doing proper project closeout and will present proper documentation related to the contract work for this project accordingly.
