A poorly-planned building envelope could leave occupants vulnerable to the elements, compromise the energy efficiency of the building, or even result in life-threatening hazards. It is the building envelope consultant’s job to coordinate with the owners, designers, and builders of a construction project so as to prevent such problems.
One of the biggest problems facing buildings is water intrusion. Surprisingly common and highly destructive, this problem can sneak up on your building to inflict untold damage before you ever notice. The trained eye of a building envelope consultant helps spot potential water intrusion issues and minimizes damage before, during, and after your construction project.
