Architects Can Plan Ahead for an Energy Efficient and Water Tight Commercial Building

Our Building Envelope Consultants can help Ensure an Architect’s Commercial Building Design is Energy Efficient According to USACE Standards and Resistant To Water Infiltration

architectsBecause of the increasingly high cost of water infiltration damage and the recently implemented USACE Air Barrier Testing regulations, more architects are retaining the services of a building envelope consultant during the initial design phase as well as during the construction of the commercial project. By predetermining the building envelope details prior to construction, your client can:

  • Mitigate future and costly water damage.
  • Increase the energy efficiency of the building according to USACE regulations.
  • Help ensure critical construction problems and multiple change orders are eliminated.
  • Help ensure project details are well planned and effectively communicated to sub-contractors.
  • Help ensure USACE air tightness tests can be successfully completed
