Recon Independent Assessments again provided investigative services, in partnership with the Architect working for Facilities Maintenance, on a university campus in North Florida to provide valuable information that will allow for the creation of repair documents to stop ongoing water intrusion issues affecting a building.
By documenting the existing conditions and performing testing, we were able to locate the defects causing the water intrusion.
A report documenting the sources of water along with photos detailing and supporting our conclusions was submitted the following day.
Recon is proud to have built an ongoing relationship with the facilities staff and architect that has been ongoing for years.
When the building is experiencing leaks there are many possibilities for where the water is coming from. If you need assistance locating the source of the issue, we can help.
We did just that earlier this month for a Central Florida city.
We were able to identify multiple issues that will need attention to restore the building envelope to prevent water from passing through to the interior during wind driven rain events.
Our approach and experience with hundreds of buildings makes us uniquely qualified to assist you with your project.
Our documentation of the existing conditions and qualitative results from diagnostic testing will be utilized by a design professional to develop a repair plan that can be used to estimate costs for the repairs.
We’re ready to help you with your building, give us a call.
Recon partners with many contractors across Central Florida to ensure the success of its skilled craftsmen is documented during the construction of Multi-Family apartments.
By applying the ASTM E-1105 test procedure on a job site early on in the project, the waterproofing details and workmanship can be confirmed to be delivering a watertight building envelope at the window openings.
Sealant, flashing and mull details get subjected to conditions that demonstrate the job is being done correctly and well.
Documentation of the successful testing is always provided in report form.
