About Us


Our Mission

We will utilize the most cutting edge processes to provide the absolute best services with the most talented team available while maintaining the highest integrity.

Firm Profile

Zero/Six Consulting, LLC was founded in 2003 by Bill Coltzer Jr., AIA in response to an industry wide need for higher performing and cohesive building envelope systems. Since its establishment, Zero/Six has become a leader in delivering innovative solutions for the creation and maintenance of better building envelopes. When called on, we mobilize a dedicated team of in-house professionals — Architects, Engineers, LEED Green Associates, Registered Roofing Observers (RRO), Project Managers, and Senior Field Specialists. Our team meets each project’s particular requirements, performance goals, budgetary criteria, and scheduling requirements, tailoring solutions that fit the individual building and client needs. As building envelope specialists, we are dedicated to ensuring the integrity, quality and performance of the exterior envelope, facades, fenestration, and roofs of new and existing buildings. Our technical expertise in all facets of building envelope systems enables our clients to construct facilities with increased energy savings, reduced maintenance, and enhanced weather resistance, creating a longer lasting investment throughout the building’s life cycle.

Our philosophy is simple: Identify. Explain. Resolve. We work with our clients to identify current gaps and potential threats; explain problematic issues and offer resolutions that ensure quality standards are met and cost-effective solutions are delivered. To elaborate, when Zero/Six mobilizes its resources, we will:

    • Identify – Pinpoint the issue. Our experts possess comprehensive knowledge critical to superior building design and can pinpoint and document the exact source and path of water and air infiltration, as well as the vulnerability of any product or workmanship. Our team uses the latest building envelope forensic technology, such as simulated thermal and moisture analysis and infrared imaging, to identify issues beneath the surface of the building façade. You’ll know exactly where the issues exist throughout your current building system.
    • Explain – Explain the problem and present options. It’s not enough to know what the problems are, you need to know why they became a problem so that those issues can be avoided when renovating the facility. How did it happen? How could it have been prevented? Our team will provide a detailed report that contains photographic documentation, major issues, repair cost, thermal images, and design recommendations to clearly document all issues so the owner can make informed decisions that meet the needs of the building and short-and long-term goals.
    • Resolve – Create a solution. After thorough analysis, identification and explanation of envelope deficiencies, we will work with your project team to define remediation options, including detail development, oversight of remediation work, and performance testing to verify repairs.

Whether your project is still under construction or fully occupied our goal is the same, to replace uncertainty with confidence. When the outside stays out, you prolong the life of your new or existing building and gain a better return on your investment as a place to innovate, learn and work into a better tomorrow.
