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.

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.
We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of solving the most complex and troubling building envelope problems. We recognize that no two clients, building, or job is the same. Our goal is to understand your unique situation and to provide you with accurate and relevant information that helps you make the right decisions for your facility.
