Session Overview: Building Envelope Failures & How to Avoid Them

The building envelope is the highest risk element of construction. Often, the contractors are taking on a large portion of this risk. With increased building complexity, stringent owner requirements, vague design documents, and diminishing labor pool, these risks are higher than ever. This presentation will review 3 case studies and identify the cause of the failure. Morrison Hershfield will provide tools for contractors to help improve quality and decrease risk of performance problems in this one-hour presentation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review 3 building envelope failures through 3 case studies
  • Identify ways to work with the architect to improve clarity of the design intent
  • Understand construction practices to help build quality into the construction
  • Identify useful and cost effective test methods to verify performance during construction

This session will be presented by Rick Ziegler, Department Manager / Sr. Building Science Consultant, and Chris Ball, Building Science Consultant.
