ENVELOPE was brought in by a Portland construction firm to find the source of infiltration after others were not able to. We ultimately found the reason for the leaking and provided a comprehensive report on the problem.
The Masonry parapet of this private school began to leak soon after the building was completed. While addressing some other issue onsite we were able to find the source of the leaks and fix this issue as well.
This was originally thought to be a window issue but after comprehensive water testing we were able to reproduce the masonry leak and track its source. The mason was onsite and was able to fix the issue while the wall was open for investigation.
In order to determine the source of leaking on this project we isolated the windows from the ACM panel system during the investigation. It was determined that the leaks were from the windows and a report was submitted to the client with documentation on the leak and recommendations for repair
Sometimes even the most beautifully crafted windows and doors leak. These particular windows created little sand castles as the sand blew in through the seals. ENVELOPE worked with the manufacturer and the contractor to remedy this situation.
ENVELOPE was called upon by RWH Architects to consult on the Atkinson Fire Station in Atkinson, NH. The Fire station was built 17 years ago and started showing signs of deterioration behind the siding last year. Along with RWH, ENVELOPE did a complete exterior destructive investigation and provided the client with a full findings report and presentation to the town. Our report cites causes of failure, tracking of water infiltration, the extent of damage and recommendations for repair.
