Building Envelope Commissioning for Federal Courthouse Renovations
AltusWorks is providing professional services as the Envelope Commissioning Agent on a multi-discipline team for nine Federal Buildings and U.S. Courthouses in the Great Lakes Region 5. The commissioning services verify and document compliance with GSA performance objectives, sustainable design, and good construction practices throughout the various phases of each project. The nine major renovation projects vary in size and scale from $18.2M to $96.7M. Commissioning of the envelope entails the review of air, vapor, moisture and thermal barrier systems, the identification of construction testing and quality assurance processes, and documentation of the construction testing to verify that systems and details are properly installed and that they meet performance requirements.
