Building Envelope Commissioning

Allana Buick & Bers provides Building Envelope Commissioning (BECx) services as a part of Whole Building Commissioning.

Our exterior enclosure commissioning services are from pre-design through construction, occupancy, and operations.   Our intensive quality assurance process meets the goals set out by ASHRAE and the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) for exterior enclosure commissioning.

Historically, the most common area of building failure is the exterior enclosure. When applied systematically, commissioning services can significantly reduce the risk of future water infiltration; improve facility operation and maintenance; and reduce the life cycle cost of the facility for the life of the building.

Our exterior envelope commissioning process facilitates communication, coordination, system selection, testing, and verification to deliver building systems in accordance with the intended design for the following systems:

  • Roofing Systems
  • Exterior Walls
  • Window Walls, Curtain Walls, and Storefronts
  • Exterior Doors and Windows
  • Sealants, Joints, and  Flashings
  • Plaza Decks and Podiums
  • Planters
  • Foundation Systems
  • Below-Grade Walls

Our commissioning services will 1) identify and mitigate issues early to allow the project to remain on schedule; and 2) provide a building that meets the Owner’s Performance Requirements.
