“Good buildings come from good people, and all problems are solved by good design.”

— Stephen Gardiner

Visual Consulting, LLC...

Since 1987 Scott Dow, and Dow, Inc., have been meeting the construction needs of commercial leaders, multi-family housing providers, individual new custom home projects, and Charleston Historic Renovations as a design-and-build construction and remodeling company in Charleston, South Carolina.

Because of his long-standing reputation as a high-quality professional, Scott was engaged by a long-time business associate in 2001 to determine how and why a relatively new commercial building was structurally failing.

From this assessment experience, Scott realized there was a profound need for a forensic construction assessment service provider in the region and subsequently launched Visual Consulting, LLC in 2002. Recently Scott was asked by a local attorney why he thought we are seeing so many commercial and residential structural or component failures . . . problems such as water intrusion issues and major construction deficiencies.

Scott feels “it is all about what is important and what seems to be the most expedient. In the past - from a historic perspective, people took pride in doing the job right the first time. They used the right materials, which helped secure the property for time’s test, but today it seems to have become all about what is expedient. It's whoever can do it the fastest and at the lowest price; then let the next guy worry about the resulting problems. That may seem a little cynical but as we so often hear people say, 'The proof is in the pudding'”.

From claims evaluation to litigation support services like construction mock-ups and forensic documentation, Visual Consulting, LLC, can make the difference in finding and experiencing the best outcome and results.
