Abstract:

Water intrusion is the most common and damaging dilemma facing buildings of all shapes, sizes and materials.  Incorporating a building envelope consultant during the design and construction process can help to identify and eliminate problematic construction details before they become maintenance nightmares, while also saving building owners, designers, and contractors time and money.  This presentation will explore the role of a building envelope consultant in new construction, detail the envelope consulting process, and provide examples of common problems identified and remediated during the design and construction process.
