Field Testing is pre-functional testing of various building components far in advance of the installed product to ensure that installed systems interface as intended, and workmanship meets the international standards of performance. It is usually undertaken when certain building materials or procedures are best tested at the construction site.
Building performance testing on envelope system and products and mock-ups at sites can provide critical data before your construction project begins. It allows pre-diagnosis of potential problems, such as air infiltration, structural deflection, water infiltration, thermal transmittance, sound transmittance, and fire resistance. Once known, proactive measures can be undertaken to remedy flaws that will avoid potential risks, project delays and any extra expenditure on building material and labor costs.
We draw on our extensive building envelope commissioning expertise and utilize available accredited resources for problem resolution, or simply to ensure the quality of your products and systems meet the set standards of performance. Before we start our testing on site, we first understand your goals and then apply industry standard field testing protocols and procedures customized to suit your quality control program requirements. We follow widely recognized standards like ASTM, AAMA, etc., where applicable.
