To ensure the expected life cycle is realized for the Houston Methodist West Hospital Phase II Expansion, Zero/ Six provided construction administration services, including peer reviews, submittal/shop drawing reviews, and observation of the ongoing construction of building enclosure components twice a week to compare with the construction documents. Performance
testing of the installed enclosure systems included air/water infiltration testing and diagnostic nozzle testing of fenestrations to ensure the final product exceeded expectations.
