The Preview Group, Inc.
An architectural code consulting firm that specializes in offering creative solutions to regulatory issues
The Preview Group, Inc. is an architectural consulting firm that specializes in building codes and regulatory issues affecting construction. The genesis of the firm was the desire to assist our clients in creating design solutions that fit within the regulatory framework of their specific projects.
Preview began over 30 years ago as a small germ of an idea hashed out at the dining room table of one of the founding partners, and has now grown to be a nationally recognized firm, with offices in Cincinnati and the San Francisco Bay Area. Preview serves clients throughout the United States, from one-person firms to large practices, public entities to private corporations, and those having general design and construction questions to others with specialty concerns such as ADA compliance or repurposing existing structures.
The firm’s consulting team of architects and engineers has extensive experience as designers, code officials, trade organization representatives, and consultants. They are well versed in all areas of code compliance, and actively participate in code-related activities at the local, state and national levels.
The services offered by Preview cover all aspects of code and regulatory issues, including design, accessibility and legal consulting; contract plan review; third-party and QA/QC peer review; hazardous materials and fire protection assessment; training seminars; and publication development.
