Water Penetration Resistance Field Testing is being completed on schedule to confirm the success of installation of both operable windows and curtain wall elements in a newly constructed high school west of Orlando for a longtime client.
Multiple buildings have been tested over the course of the past couple of days. Additional testing is scheduled soon as more samples become available.
Recon is prepared to assist you on your next project, give us a call to learn how we can help you deliver a quality building envelope.
The recent tropical rains that swept across Florida has lead to the reporting of leaks in many buildings. While some of the issues were straightforward and solutions were easily attained, there are times when a more thorough approach is required.
Recon is always ready to help & our longtime clients know it.
We’ve been busy tracking down the cause and origin of leaks for many of them using a combination of visual examinations, IR Thermography and diagnostic water testing.
If you need a little assistance finding those troublesome leaks, give Recon a call.
We’re always ready to help find solutions to your water intrusion issues.
Recon Independent Assessments provides building envelope quality control examinations throughout the construction process to help monitor the details that could result in water intrusion if not completed correctly. Our periodic visits provide a focused look at specific areas that may get overlooked by the project team due to the vast amount of activity that is ongoing.
The singular focus of our visits (building envelope details) allows us to provide feedback to the Superintendent and Project Manager so that issues can be addressed in a timely manner. Eliminating potential water intrusion issues during the construction process leads to a better building being delivered and that is always our goal.
Let us know if we can discuss how our cost effective QC program can benefit and strengthen your project team.
