Specification and Design

We help you realize your vision with detailed plans. Choose from thousands of products with our expert recommendations.

Budgeting and Estimation

Let us help you understand your options with comprehensive budgets for small projects to multimillion dollar facilities. We meet your goals with full scope reviews and value engineering. Leverage our direct access to every major supplier to meet the needs of any project.

Detailing Process

We work with the largest number of AHC-certified (Architectural Hardware Consultant) detailers in the country and ensure code compliance with custom specification documents. We make adjustments before construction begins, saving you time and money during the building process.


Let us apply hardware in our own facility before it’s shipped to you. We pre-test that each part is functioning correctly and free of defects. This process dramatically improves installation times on the job site, decreasing risk of damage and saving you from on-site storage.


Whether it is custom in-house or factory key systems, we can supply your project with the most up-to-date combinative keys and cores. We sell new keying systems, replace existing locksets or provide rekeying and core replacement services. We’ll pre-install, ship to site or deliver directly to the owner.

Custom Fabrication and Welding

We create truly unique doors, frames and hardware using best-in-class materials. Certified with the UL or Warnock Hersey marks, The Cook & Boardman Group’s specialty fabrications are performance tested for safety, quality and reliability.

Project Management

Our seasoned project managers supervise the job from beginning to end. We manage large-scale institutional projects in industries from healthcare to hotels. We work closely with our customers to deliver products on-time and on-budget.


We’ll coordinate with your local subcontractors or send our own team to get the job done. Our veteran professionals are up-to-date on the latest training, so your project will be completed safely and effectively.

After Market/Replacement and Repair

We provide ongoing maintenance, on-site diagnostic services and access to all the materials you need to keep your facility operational. Our experts help you with the design and budget of additions or upgrades on any scale, as well as ensure your facility complies with any new code regulations.

Fire Door Inspection and Installation

Safety is your top priority, so let our FDAI-certified specialists inspect your fire doors on a regular basis. We provide you with a detailed report, outlining recommendations to avoid shutdowns, liability issues and safety concerns.

Environmental Sustainability

Environmental responsibility and achieving sustainability goals are more important than ever. The Cook and Boardman Group has Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), license code FSC-C006833, certification capability to assist you when Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and FSC® Chain of Custody certification is important.
