A building envelope does more than just keep the weather out. It is also crucial for meeting energy efficiency goals, for protecting occupant health and for ensuring a long building life. A compromised building envelope can be an owner’s worst nightmare. C3 has the expertise to evaluate your building envelope to assess its condition and performance, and to provide a practical approach for areas requiring mitigation.
Our engineers are certified to hang from building facades and personally inspect everything—from brick or glass panes, mullions and seals to roofs, skylights and waterproofing. We facilitate close collaboration between architect and engineer, with peer review and quality control inspections as training to accomplish the task at hand.
We educate owners on their building’s physical condition within the context of their strategic vision for the asset. Our recommendations may be substantially different for a client planning to hold a building for three years versus a city or institution planning to own the property in perpetuity.
Our team is adept at explaining complex technical issues to non-technical people—investment managers, accountants, boards, and lenders. We help clients understand the critical nature of building envelope issues. And we employ the latest thinking and technology to ensure their building is sealed properly—with zero tolerance for errors.
