AGC Utah: Building Envelope Failures & How to Avoid Them
May 15, 2019 at 11:30 am - 1:00 pm UTC-5
Our team is excited to present this Lunch and Learn session to the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Utah! This session will take place on Wednesday, May 15 from 11:30 am to 1 pm at AGC Utah in Salt Lake City.
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.
- 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.
