Through working directly with the design professional, our dedicated staff can provide industry-leading consultation for complete and accurate Division 8 Door and Hardware and 10 Specialties specifications. CIH's trained staff will assist you in choosing the correct materials, products, and designs to meet your specific project requirements. Our services are independent of any manufacturer to ensure we focus on the needs of your project. On retrofit or expansion projects, we visit your client's facility and conduct a comprehensive site assessment to ensure we match existing vendor or product requirements-at no charge.


Our architectural clients demand the highest quality because their reputation is riding on every project they design. At CIH, our Architectural Hardware Consultants have the professional experience required to fully prepare Division 8 and 10 specifications for projects of any size and scope. With our years of experience, we have had the privilege to work with architects and general contractors on a wide range of projects including commercial office buildings, primary and secondary education facilities, hospitals and healthcare facilities, and high-tech industrial facilities.

The objective of our specification writers is to produce a quality spec that captures both the architect and owner’s requirements. With our experienced staff, we can meet the design requirements of your project while guaranteeing that all life and fire safety codes are met and conform to local and national building codes and ADA requirements.

CIH also has the capability to prepare fully integrated electronic access control systems for our architectural clients. We can prepare this specification completely coordinated with the Division 8 (Doors, Frames, and Hardware) and Division 16 (Electrical). Our specification writers have the expertise to minimize any conflicts between Divisions thereby allowing our clients to get the most comprehensive and cost effective results.

Finally, since we specialize in providing Division 8 and 10 products and services to the construction community, we can also offer budgetary pricing for your project.
