C. B. Goldsmith & Associates, Inc. (CBGA) is a full service, veteran-owned, forensic architectural and consulting firm, specializing in the investigation, evaluation and design of new and existing building enclosure systems, as well as handling the technical aspects of problems in construction. We have a broad scope of expertise related to roofing, painting, waterproofing, and building enclosure systems, and although a large percentage of our work relates to the analysis and correction of problems with existing construction, we are still a full-service architectural design firm that utilizes its knowledge of the building sciences to address complicated detailing in order to create innovative design solutions.
