Darthmouth-Hitchcock Medical Group
Building Envelope Specialists, Inc. provided a building assessment and forensic investigation services on a recently constructed building. After initial material and moisture testing were completed, a forensic inspection on the building’s masonry was performed. During the operation, BES discovered moisture patterns developing on the exterior façade were driven by condensation from an unbalanced HVAC system. Once corrections were made to the system, the client shortly realized energy savings and a reduction in exterior moisture staining on the façade. BES’s team used a blend of science and common sense to solve this client’s problems.
