The Benefits of the Building Enclosure Commissioning Process
Longevity, as defined by something that has a long existence or service, is critical for building envelopes. As technology advances, and methods of construction change, the increased longevity of envelope components must continue to be challenged by the industry. This session helps identify critical factors, which have a direct relationship to the potential longevity for envelope systems, identify and propose enhanced performance criteria to meet these longevity goals, and reset the discussion with the building envelope industry as it relates to the design, engineering, fabrication, and installation of lasting building exterior envelope systems. We also hope to start a dialog on what an acceptable longevity of an envelope should be industry wide.
