Existing Building Failure Analysis
Buildings, both old and new, experience failure. Wojcieszak & Associates, Inc. has helped many building owners identify the reasons their buildings failed and recommend cost effective ways to repair or retrofit the elements that failed. With over 25 years of experience in construction, a wealth of knowledge has been gained in the areas of air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, building envelopes, indoor air quality, etc. Understanding the relationship between the building construction and the systems within the building is paramount. Many buildings fail because this relationship was not considered important. The best air conditioning system design, operation and installation matters very little if the windows leak.
Other examples of failure analysis include corrosion of equipment and materials, pipe breaks and leaks, lightning strikes, etc.
