Building Enclosure Compliance Testing, Part 2: Exploring Further Case Studies
Building enclosure field and material testing is a fundamental part of any compliance program, but it can be confusing with numerous tests and approaches. Designers and owners are not always clear on what testing to include, why the testing is applicable, the appropriate performance criteria, or if the testing is worth the cost and schedule impacts. As a result, testing programs often fall short of expectations, causing frustration and schedule delays. In part two of this webinar series, we will continue our work to demystify compliance testing by reviewing typical construction testing techniques with new case studies and examples of testing costs associated with different project types and sizes. We will also discuss appropriate testing goals, how to specify, how to execute, and what the results mean.
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify common compliance testing options available, including material, workmanship, and assembly tests.
- Establish appropriate project compliance testing goals.
- Understand the suitability of the various compliance tests.
- Understand the possible cost and schedule impacts of compliance testing and how early implementation can alleviate these effects.
