Testing is covering select areas across the entire building enclosure systems including the windows, storefront, curtain wall systems and roof systems The request for the testing was driven by the proposed tenant of the building. The developer engaged Terra-Petra based on our experience, reputation, and familiarity with the buildings.
The scope of work includes performing ASTM E1105-08 Modified, and/or AAMA 501.2 Modified. Our services covered industry standards for Testing and Reporting as specified in standard Specification Sections relative to these systems.
We are also providing technical consulting services to be carried out by Terra-Petra’s Principal Waterproofing Consultant to assess root causes for water intrusion that occurred at the building interior during the water testing efforts. We are currently writing up our recommendations for repairs in the few areas where water did migrate through the building enclosure systems.
