Building Envelope Assessments
From Engineering Services
Collecting data and making observations is an important first step in identifying distress and other potential problem areas of building envelopes. However, in order to mitigate loss, an assessment must be performed in concert with an appropriate diagnosis and course of action, which can only be determined by building envelope consultants.
Our skilled professionals utilize state-of-the-art technology to test and evaluate the intricate function and interaction of roofs and exterior wall systems through roof consulting, roof uplift resistant testing, construction QA/QC, water and air infiltration testing per ASTM E1105-00 and a number of qualitative evaluation services such as infrared thermography and moisture mapping.
Additionally, with forensic investigation being one of our main service lines, we are able to provide a unique perspective for design, design review, condition assessments and on-site quality assurance of building systems. This perspective allows us to identify issues before they arise, ultimately saving time and money for all parties involved.
