Hunt Consolidated

Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABB), was retained by Hunt Consolidated to provide building enclosure consulting, below-grade waterproofing, design review, bidding support, construction administration services, and building enclosure performance testing for Corporate Headquarters located in Dallas, Texas.

Hunt Consolidated’s $120 million, 14-story corporate headquarters in downtown Dallas features a unique sail and ellipse facade. ABB reviewed systems, developed details, and wrote system specifications. Systems included below grade waterproofing, masonry walls, terrace waterproofing, roofing, and fountain waterproofing. ABB provided periodic site observation during the installation of these systems and continued technical support during construction.

ABB provided services throughout the design phase of the project to assist the architect in the selection of waterproofing materials and detail development during the construction phase to perform quality control inspections and testing of the installed building enclosure systems and refinement of details. All these efforts
helped to identify and resolve building enclosure issues prior to completion of the building which resulted leak proof construction with no contractor setbacks.
