New Acquisition Positions GCI for Industry Leadership

Merger with IAQCP brings together top building protection experts - Building envelope specialists GCI Consultants, LLC announces its merger with one of the country’s top indoor air consulting firms, Indoor Air Quality Consulting Partners (IAQCP).

The new acquisition positions GCI as a leader in the building construction industry, as the company will now offer in-house services for protecting both the exterior and interior of new and renovated residential or commercial buildings.Unlike its industry competitors, who typically employ a general inspector to assess damage, make recommendations and take preventative measures, the collaboration between GCI and IAQCP now provides clients with world class experts in exterior glazing, wall, roofing, cladding and waterproofing systems as well as indoor air quality control.  ”We have a specialist for each building segment, and our people are well trained to collaborate,” says Paul Beers, one of the managing partners at GCI Consultants.“The merger of GCI and IAQ Consulting Partners elevates GCI into a class of its own,” continues Beers.  ”As far as we know, we are the only company who offers an entire slate of qualified experts who can evaluate a building from roof to foundation and everything in between.  If buildings are properly protected from the outside, now we are prepared to help owners assess and correct problems on the inside, when water or other elements are creating problems.”Equipped to find the root cause of “sick” buildings, the new indoor air quality team will specialize in hospital indoor air quality, hotel indoor air quality, office building indoor air quality, and commercial indoor air quality.  Led by industry veterans Hall Brodie, PE, and Nate Sanders, CIH, LEED AP, IAQCP is known for its expertise in forensic investigations to discover the sources of moisture, mold, chemical substances and other items that can wreak havoc on a building’s interior.Geography also played a key factor in the merger.  IAQCP is located in Atlanta.  As GCI expands its presence in the Southeastern states, an Atlanta office will help facilitate growth. GCI currently has offices in West Palm Beach, Miami, Orlando and Jacksonville.For Brodie and Sanders, Florida’s moist climate creates a logical market for helping owners protect indoor air quality.

GCI and IAQCP recently partnered to work on 12th and Laurel, a large luxury residential project in Nashville. The successful collaboration was impetus for the acquisition.

“We couldn’t be more perfectly poised for growth, and feel like 2014 will be a significant milestone for all involved,” says Beers.
