Why Hire a Building Envelope Consultant?
40 percent of all building-related problems are due to water intrusion. Water intrusion accounts for nearly 80-percent of construction litigation. Water intrusion can have a devastating effect on your building’s structure, your facility operations, and the health of its occupants. In many cases, water intrusion is caused by poor design and/or workmanship. Hiring a qualified building envelope consultant offers a reasonable assurance against these problems developing before, during, or after construction.
Lichy & Associates’ extensive experience analyzing and solving water- and moisture-related failures and our comprehensive understanding of the interactivity of each building component and system, gives us an unique insight when it comes to designing, overseeing, and monitoring new and rehabilitation construction projects. We can ensure you that the appropriate materials and systems are selected for your project, that the design and details work, and that the materials are properly installed with high workmanship standards.
