Hot Topic Presentation
On November 9, 2016, at 12 p.m. EST, Kenneth Lies, AIA will present the following:
A Perspective on Building-Enclosure Consulting and Peer Review
Engaging a qualified design professional to perform building enclosure consulting and peer review services for a construction project has become more and more common. The demand for these professional services is often driven by building owners, architects and/ or contractors that recognize the inherent risks of design and construction and the potential negative impacts (financial, scheduling, legal, etc…) that defects all too often have on a project. The presentation is from the perspective of a licensed architect whose firm provides building enclosure peer reviews, consultation and quality assurance testing services.
Kenneth Lies, AIA has been engaged in the investigation, evaluation, and rehabilitation of projects throughout the country. He provides expertise in building-enclosure consulting, architectural technology, water-leakage diagnostics, material and systems evaluations, construction-contract-document preparation and review.
