There are various approaches for implementing preconstruction mockups and in-field performance testing during a new building construction project. Various types of mockups as well as strategies for implementing in-field performance testing of building enclosure systems will be discussed. The presenters will provide suggestions for how to use mockups and field-testing efficiently and effectively, and will present lessons learned from past projects. The recent Campus Avenue project at Bates College will be presented as a case study.
