Building Envelope Assessments
In-depth facade and roof inspections, components, and accessory evaluations, with proactive cost and schedule loaded recommendations.
On building envelope assessment assignments, K2M reviews the as-constructed conditions of the façade (walls, doors, windows, projections, flashings) and the roof (membrane, parapet, edge conditions, penetrations, curbs, and equipment) to determine useful life expectancy, improvements requirement, and how to prolong the system itself.
Any repairs, restorations, or replacements are based upon accurate assessments; implemented by our team using materials appropriate for the situation. The following services are typically provided:
- Obtain all available documents regarding current roof systems
- Interviews with facility staff
- Survey and document a thorough review of each roof and building area
- Conduct thermal imaging
- Take core cuts in the roof to determine material composition
- Identify any drainage issues
- Evaluate previous repairs
- Provide detailed drawings of each roof area identifying issues
- Evaluate the integrity of the structural decking
- Provide solution options with recommendations
- Prioritize the recommendations
- Establish a budget
- Develop a report of findings
