Garland now offers a comprehensive, scientific building envelope evaluation service that helps a building owner determine the best energy-cost-reducing options for roof and wall remediation projects. The service is offered through the Garland Engineering Services Group.
According to John Pierson, PE, manager of the Engineering Services Group: “Building owners are looking for ways to be sustainable and reduce costs while solving the maintenance problems of aging facilities. Through our Building Envelope Services, we offer clients a best-value approach; first determining their facility’s energy and sustainability goals, then providing practical, service-life-extending solutions.”
Building Envelope Services is provided in three phases:
- Phase 1, Assessment involves historical research, an inventory of building envelope components and their current condition and recommendations for improvement.
- Phase 2, Energy Evaluation consists of an energy audit of the building envelope and a life-cycle cost analysis of the potential energy savings that can be realized from recommended improvements.
- Phase 3, Environmental is a risk assessment for the building and subsequent recommendations for materials and/or services that can improve air quality, eliminate or minimize the use of hazardous materials, and reduce other safety and wellness hazards related to the exterior building envelope.
This new service package helps clients see the relationships between utility cost savings and solution options to make more educated decisions based on principles, such as total cost of ownership and sustainability.
