Is Your Building’s Weather Gear Holding Up?
A Systematic Approach to Evaluating the Building Enclosure
To be presented by Steven J. Bohlen, P.E., RRC, RWC, BECxP,
Associate & Building Enclosure Specialist

A major responsibility of building owners and building managers is to ensure their buildings are as watertight, energy‐efficient, and safe as practical. This means investigating and evaluating the building enclosure (roof, walls, windows,waterproofing, and structure) to define and resolve existing issues as well as correcting deficiencies that can become future issues. Whether an owner is investigating a moisture intrusion problem themselves or have hired a consultant, a systematic approach can serve as a guide to determining and repairing building enclosure issues and deficiencies.
