Scope of Work
FEC joined the project team going into construction, supplementing the role of the previous enclosure consultant. We provided construction phase services, including construction administration, construction observations, field engineering, RFI assistance, and redesigns due to value engineering of some of the building components. FEC developed extensive test recommendations and protocols for quality assurance testing of the building enclosure’s performance including the testing of a first install mock-up and final quality assurance testing of the entire building enclosure.
