Building Envelope Review

A Systematic Approach to Evaluating the Building Envelope

A major responsibility of facility managers is to ensure that their buildings are water-tight, energy-efficient, and safe. This often means investigating and evaluating the building envelope (roofs, walls, windows, HVAC, waterproofing, and structure) to define and resolve existing problems as well as to avoid future problems. We will present a systematic approach for investigating, evaluating, and repairing building envelope problems including researching a building’s history, performing a field inspection, testing methods, and engineering analysis and material selection.


Aerial is an innovator in the building maintenance industry, and we are pleased to offer you our professional expertise on all levels and bring in specialists outside of our scope when necessary.

We will inspect your property to identify any problem areas and provide our recommendations on how to address these issues using the highest quality, most cost-effective and environmentally sustainable products and techniques available.

We rappel the building to locate and inspect specific areas of concern, take photos, evaluate the issue, design repair scopes and install a permanent solution. We will provide these photos to you, along with an analysis for your consideration and to assist you in decision making.

A Thorough Evaluation = Long-Term Cost Savings

An in-depth evaluation of the building envelope enables the architect / engineer to develop accurate specifications for contractor bidding, that will also be used during construction. The quality of the initial field evaluation reflects directly on the quality and performance of repairs, as outlined in the specification documents. A thorough investigation also promotes an efficient design specification, thereby mitigating restoration cost overruns.

The time and expense to perform an initial, well-focused evaluation will save the building owner money in the long run and result in repairs that extend the service life of your building.
