Construction Mockups & Testing: Overview, Trends, and Best Practices
For complex building enclosures, many questions can arise during the design process about system performance, constructability, safety, aesthetics, and other factors. In most cases, a construction mockup can help project teams see a design prototype up close to make informed decisions before construction begins. However, there are various approaches for implementing preconstruction mockups and in-field performance testing during a new building construction project. In this webinar, we will discuss and present several case studies that identify types of mockups. We will also explore strategies for using mockups to coordinate between trades, evaluate constructability, and test to confirm that systems meet specified performance requirements.
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Learn best practices for specification and implementation of mockups.
- Understand the laboratory test methods used frequently on exterior wall mockups.
- Learn strategies for efficient use of field-testing techniques and on-building mockups.
- Gain lessons learned from past projects.
