We’re always available via phone to help you understand the testing that may be required on your project.
Our newest client called to ask a few questions about the field quality control testing they were going to be required to pass on the project. Over the course of a few weeks and multiple conversations to help them understand the standards and procedures, Recon was asked to join the project to provide Third Party field quality control testing.
In addition to providing the required testing, we were able to assist our client in diagnosing issues that were identified during the site visit, at no additional charge.
Recon strives to perform services holistically, meaning, we see greater value in moving the project forward to a successful conclusion when we are there. Its our goal to aid in the completion of the building envelope, not just give it a thumb up or down.
Recon recently completed another round of field testing on curtain wall mock-ups for a hospital’s vertical expansion project.
Recon is looking forward to continuing to work with hospital staff, the project architect, the construction team and the glazing system installers to deliver a watertight building that will serve the community for decades to come.
Recon recently completed testing on a Medical Center in Central Florida to determine the success of the installation of the Storefront Windows. The testing revealed an issue were the head flashing joined to EFIS. By performing testing, the issue will be resolved during construction.
Recon is available for ASTM E 1105 Field Testing on your project.
