In the Eye of Irma

The 2012 ASCE code requires Naples, FL to be designed for ultimate 3-sec wind gusts of 160 mph. Irma was well within that number upon landfall. Even with limited historical data, it’s evident that ASCE does a significant amount of research to create their design wind speed contour maps. The code-specified ultimate design wind speeds represent a 7% probability of exceedance in 700-years.

Start With the End in Mind

Following winter months, many properties recognize the need to properly identify building envelope and structural maintenance and repair needs. These maintenance and repair efforts usually require the involvement of a licensed Professional Engineer and/or qualified consultant. This is the first of a series of seasonal articles that will look at the steps BECS takes to assist our clients to develop a program that will successfully identify project needs, the roles of team members involved in the project, and the expected end result of the project.

Join us on Thursday, January 24th, 20198 as we present, "The Foundations of Fenestrations" as part of the BOMA Baltimore Education Series

The session reviews fenestration types such as windows, curtainwalls, skylights, and other openings with the purpose of aiding building owners and property managers in practical decision making when considering maintenance, renewal, or replacement programs. The session will also review air, thermal, and water testing of repaired and replaced fenestrations and the use of mock-ups and prototypes during the design phases of project development, as well as, their use during quality assurance testing during restoration. Additionally, case studies will be presented to review how the foundations are implemented in practice.
