Providing Solutions For A New Client

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.

Teamwork Is The Recon Way

Third Party Water Intrusion Investigations By Recon

When we received the call requesting assistance in locating the sources of multiple water intrusion issues in a three year old structure we were happy to help.

Despite calls for service to the contractor, the potentially responsible subcontractors that responded to investigate provided no solutions, just a finger pointed toward a different subcontractor.

After watching the circular firing squad approach end without results, we got the call.

Our approach was simple; we looked at the details where leaks were being reported without bias regarding who may be responsible.

Our process included gathering background information about where leaks had been observed inside, followed by a methodical examination and diagnostic testing until the leaks were duplicated.

Once we were able to see the leaks happening, we provided documentation to the owner so that they could request specific remedies to the latent problems affecting the building.

Have a building that needs a neutral third party examination?

Our focus is tight.

Our goal simple.

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.
