Building Enclosure Field Testing
Confirm the job is being done right by conducting testing on your project in progress
Testing on materials, products, and mock-ups can provide you invaluable data before your construction project begins, but the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Whether you need assistance with problem resolution or simply to ensure the quality of your products and systems, we can be there to help.
With over 15,000 field testing jobs conducted within the last 10 years and accredited field testing teams dispatched from locations across North America, we’re prepared when you’re ready to begin. Before our work beings on site, we carefully communicate with you to match our services to your end goal. We will ensure the appropriate test procedures are applied, while making modifications or developing custom testing to fit your specific needs.
What types of testing do we conduct in the field?
Assess noise levels and validate expectations by conducting field sound transmission loss tests and field impact sound transmission loss tests. Site noise assessments can also be conducted to determine if existing noise levels exceed local, state, or federal noise limitations.
Air Infiltration, Water Leakage, and Structural Performance
Meet building code requirements and your contract obligations during new construction or renovation and gain ultimate quality assurance that your installed fenestration and curtain wall products are functioning as intended.
Leaky roofs cost businesses billions of dollars each year. Testing and Electronic Leak Detection can provide the quality system needed for many years of service and safety.
Whole Building Air Barrier
Confirm your completed building’s design intent will be met by quantifying the air leakage throughout the design and construction phase. Partnering with our team of Building Science professionals, you can detect and repair leaky systems prior to the completion of construction.
