A Building Envelope Consultant focuses on solving or preventing performance problems associated with the enclosures of buildings. Hiring a qualified building envelope consultant offers a reasonable assurance against problems and pitfalls developing before, during, or after construction. We are often told that these cost savings and the building owner’s added peace of mind more than offset the cost of hiring a consultant on the front end of the project.
As a Building Envelope Consultant, LOhSE2‘s role is to collaborate with owners, designers, and builders of construction projects to create high performance building envelope systems. For existing buildings, we perform investigations and testing to identify building envelope performance problems, develop repair scopes including plans and specifications, obtain bids, oversee repairs and provide construction management services.
The Building Envelope Includes:
- Exterior glass curtain walls and storefronts
- Windows and doors
- Wall systems
- Roofs and skylights
- And at-grade and below-grade slabs, foundations and basements.
