What Is The Role Of A Building Envelope Consultant?

Building costs are often discussed, but do you know how much your building could potentially cost you?

Consider your building envelope from the ground up. The foundation, dampproofing, waterproofing, air barrier, tie-ins, walls/wall openings, windows and roof all make up your building envelope. This is a pretty extensive list of places where success or failure could make or break your project.

Having your building envelope inspected during construction is crucial for peace of mind, not to mention your building’s integrity and your budget. Unbiased, third party inspection provides you with assurance that you are in fact getting what you paid for and that the work is being completed properly.

Once your building is complete, any mistakes made during construction have been covered, and any issues that arise may be inconvenient, expensive, and difficult to determine and correct. Inspecting your building’s tie-ins or air barrier, for example, is not something that can be done once the façade has been completed.

Do you have tenants? Leaks, drafts and other new construction issues are not usually met with understanding by tenants, especially when a problem causes damage, discomfort or added costs. Air leakage, for example, can significantly increase your heating and cooling needs and can cause mold. Consider the needs and interest of your tenants as well.
