Scheduling - We will schedule a mutually convenient time to call you. We guarantee a scheduling availability within 2 working days. We can schedule appointments between 07:00 and 21:00 Pacific Time.

Background Information - In order to make the maximum use of the consultation time, you can send us some background information about the question or concern by: "snail mail", e-mail or fax. We will look at that information during the consultation. This information should include a brief outline of the question or problem. You may also include proposals, drawings and photos.

The Consultation - We will help you analyze the problems and suggest ways to proceed to a solution. This may involve one or more of the following steps:

  • identifying the exact nature of the problem;
  • identify alternative solutions
  • selecting the best solution; and,
  • identifying the resources needed to solve the problem.
