Mitigating Risk In Construction
More than 85% of construction related lawsuits are due to water intrusion and leaks. Learn how to mitigate risk in construction and avoid leaks. Mitigating leaks and defective construction not only requires good detailing and design, it requires proper interpretation of manufacturer’s requirements and coordination between adjoining trades. Building envelope consultants can aid contractors during the design phase by reviewing design documents and providing peer review for conformance with manufacturer, code and industry requirements. During pre-construction, envelope experts can conduct meetings with key enclosure sub-contractors. This gives them an opportunity to ask/answer integration questions and understand what is needed for quality control measures before construction begins.
Construction Testing to Mitigate Leaks
Learn how to mitigate leaks with construction testing and mock-up testing. For building envelope systems to function trouble free, many elements that need to be confirmed and tested. Necessary testing includes adhesion testing, testing for compatibility between materials; thickness testing, air barrier testing; water testing, seismic testing; moisture permeation testing, and many others. Furthermore, testing during construction can mitigate risk by catching installation failures, design defects, or manufacturing failures that could cause leaks, prior to building occupancy. Additionally, quality assurance and monitoring services reduce risk by identifying deviations from the standard details and procedures.
Horizontal Above Grade Waterproofing
Learn about various waterproofing configurations, considerations, protections, installation and life expectancies of systems. Learn about proper requirements for substrate preparation, adjoining materials, compatibilities and substitutions for similar systems. Learn how electronic leak detection (ELD) testing works, quality assurance inspections, and manufacturer’s warranty requirements.
