Our Message

Founding Principal Tommy Faulkner has consistently “revolutionized” design and construction delivery throughout his career. First by being one of the forerunners in the state of North Carolina to understand and deliver Special Inspections services per the newly adopted International Building Code in the early 2000’s. Second by creating a program and a process to educate inspectors, designers, building owners and building officials on how to deliver construction inspections in an effective and efficient way that would create greater assurance for the safety and functionality of the completed building. Finally, in creating and leading a multi-disciplined design team to better communicate and collaborate through use of technology and improved methodology what resulted was better use of client resources, better project participant relationships, greater project success.

Simply put faulkner edc was created to serve our clients needs as a designer, an inspector, an engineer, a builder, a facilities manager, and as a value partner to our clients. We do so through the efforts of our two separate but cooperating companies faulkner engineering and design and faulkner construction. We are more than any of our single disciplines, our combined experience and insight gives our clients greater representation. We seek to understand your personal goals and tailor our services to help. Whether commercial space, a large scale development or a single residential home we are poised to serve as your consultant to bring value to your investment.

Similarly, due to our leadership’s immersion in the AEC industry, participating as a leader in the code development process, authoring best practices for construction and inspections, delivering some of the largest and most complex projects in our state and delivering training to the industry; we are uniquely qualified to serve the legal community and their potential clients who find themselves in a dispute with another party on a design or construction project. We have experience serving clients in the legal arena as an expert witness or more often as a third party performing an investigation of facts. We have been very successful in delivering positive results that have resulted, in some cases, in multi-million dollar savings to our clients.

In brief, we are the company to call if you have a small residential construction project or a large commercial project. We are the company to call if you have design needs whether for your new backyard patio and screened in porch or for your new office building. We are the company to call if you need an inspector to look at a single crack in a foundation before the closing can occur on a sale or for your $200 million project that needs the services of a seasoned Special Inspector. We are the company to call if you have a legal dispute developing because your neighbor just changed the grade of his property and has damaged your home with additional storm water runoff or if the contractor you hired just delivered a change order to you that equals 25% of the value of the $20 million project a week before it is scheduled to complete.

faulkner edc is pleased to serve you in matters great and small and will provide you with unparalleled professionalism in each circumstance.
