BSC worked with the design team through the Design Development and Contract Document stages to mitigate the risk of moisture related failures in the building enclosure and to meet the project’s energy goals. BSC performed detailed design reviews, assessing plans and details in terms of risk, durability, constructability, and energy performance. BSC identified specific problematic and complex details requiring further development and provided guidance in the form of both two- and three-dimensional details outlining our recommendations. The BSC team remained on board through construction to observe mock-ups of first installations and respond to field conditions and changes not anticipated during the design phase.
