HW3 Group, LLC (HW3) offers a complete package for property owners, contractors, public adjusters, and attorneys. We are there to assist and advise every step of the way. All of our services comply with industry standards and common trade practices. Through active involvement and leadership in organizations like the Institute for Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certiﬁcation (IICRC), HW3 is instrumental in the development of these standards and is committed to professional and ethical guidance. We offer inspection and intrusion investigation; moisture intrusion mapping and analysis; scope, protocol, and work plan development; project oversight, monitoring and veriﬁcation; project management and administration; as well as report writing services, to support the contractor’s invoice and the overall claim package.
Inspection and Intrusion Investigation – HW3 will conduct a thorough visual, thermographic and olfactory inspection of the property to identify the perimeter of damage, the extent of damage, the level of saturation in materials and assemblies, and the range of contamination in the water (i.e., Category of Water (ANSI/IICRC S500-15)). HW3 will also identify and document the source(s) of water intrusion into the building, so that a comprehensive strategy can be executed.
Moisture Intrusion Mapping and Analysis – HW3 will map and provide a detailed report of the intrusion and resulting damage through a graphical depiction of the project. The mapping also provides essential communication throughout the project.
Scope, Protocol, and Work Plan Development – The most important part of any project is to communicate and get agreement on the scope of work that will be performed. Once the scope is developed, it is equally important to make sure that the work performed will comply with industry standards, and will be produced in a timely manner. HW3 is second to none at performing this task.
Project Oversight, Monitoring and Veriﬁcation – HW3 can provide oversight of the project to ensure that the scope of work is being completed according to the protocols and work plan developed. We also monitor the moisture conditions and environmental conditions, if required. Finally, HW3 will verify the scope has been completed, the environment is clean and dry, and that it has returned to normal environmental conditions.
Project Management and Administration – HW3 can provide an experienced, qualiﬁed project manager for your project. Our network of resources will generate the right ﬁt for your needs. HW3 can also provide project administration, including: time, inventory, and equipment data entry, job book compilation, and compiling all necessary information to generate a proper time & material invoice package.
