ASTM E2813-12 establishes the standard practice for BECx as, "a process that begins with the establishment of the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) and endeavors to ensure that the exterior enclosure and those elements intended to provide environmental separation within a building or structure meet or exceed the expectations of the Owner as defined in the OPR."
In addition to ASTM E2813, we can provide preventative design guidance, testing, investigation, reporting and compliance with over a dozen other industry standards related to building enclosure.
We have a long history of locating water infiltration, condensation issues, air barrier leaks, thermal bridging and thermal insulation deficiencies. Our expertise in finding anomalies and breaches in existing and new building envelope systems is key to our effective building enclosure commissioning services.
