For Nearly a Century…

Vidaris has been a provider of niche consulting services within the architecture, engineering and construction industries focusing on high-performance buildings and specialty structures. Through an integrated, holistic approach, our professionals provide solutions for building envelope, energy and sustainability, and code advisory projects.

In August 2019, Vidaris joined the SOCOTEC Group, a leading TIC (Testing, Inspection and Certification) consultancy for the construction and infrastructure sectors. With operations in 23 countries, 200,000 clients, 8,700 employees, and internationally recognized by over 250 industry accolades, SOCOTEC shares our drive for ambitious growth and our values: commitment & excellence, entrepreneurship & innovation, accountability, and social responsibility.

SOCOTEC’s US family of brands – Vidaris, LPI, CBI Consulting, C2G International, Synergen Consulting International, David Pattillo & Associates and Construction Project Analytics Group – offers creative innovations and unparalleled client support across six closely integrated services: Building Envelope, Energy & Sustainability, Code Advisory, Project Advisory, Dispute Resolution and Specialty Engineering.

Our firm’s history affords us great stability, strength and the ability to expand geographically for new projects. Today, we can take on projects of all sizes and complexities, because even the smallest project can represent a large undertaking for our clients.

Today, Vidaris’ experienced professional staff, made up of architects and engineers, provides an integrated, holistic approach to building challenges by delivering expert advice across multiple service offerings. Vidaris continues to work collaboratively with design teams (architects, engineers, other specialty consultants, manufacturers and contractors), assisting them throughout the design, construction, and post-occupancy of new and existing building projects.

As building designers and system vendors continue to develop new and more sophisticated designs, surpassing present conventional practice, Vidaris’ advisory impact will prove to be even more critical.
