Multifamily and commercial services are focused on helping builders, developers and project stakeholders improve the quality of construction and mitigate downstream risk.
The services offered by the Burgess Multifamily and Commercial team can add value at all phases of construction. If your team needs a service we haven't listed, tell us and we'll let you know how we may be able to help.
WATERPROOFING PLAN REVIEW.
Many construction errors can be mitigated through one powerful step: peer plan review. The Burgess peer plan review is a thorough review of construction drawings to help identify errors prior to beginning construction. What makes the peer plan review so useful is that it occurs during pre-construction. Errors caught during pre-construction often result in substantial savings of both time and money later down the road.
REDUCE THE RISK Upfront.
Are the drawings and spec sheets complete?
Are the specified systems and materials congruent with one another in order to maintain warranty?
Are the applicable codes met?
Are industry best practices being followed?
Are changes to the plan communicated effectively to the construction team?
The ASTM E1105 is a standard procedure for determining the
resistance to water penetration under uniform or cyclic static
air pressure differences of installed exterior windows, skylights,
curtain walls, and doors. The air-pressure differences acting across
a building envelope vary greatly. This test is used to simulate wind
• Helps establish a standard of quality and workmanship
• Locates factory defects
• Identifies installation errors
• Verifies proper flashing installation
In accordance with ASTM D7877-14, Standard Guide for Electronic Methods for Detecting and Locating Leaks in Waterproof Membranes. Services include marking site, recording via GPS, hand-drawn map of water infiltration locations.
This method can be used to detect leaks from:
• Construction damage
• Poor Installation Methods
• Incomplete welds
• Pin holes
The nature of multifamily and commercial construction requires quality verification every step of the way. We help Builders and Developers document correct construction practices throughout the major construction stages. Here are a few.
REPORTING & TRACKING.
We help you build and document a history of correct construction throughout the project. With daily observation reports, monthly deviation tracking and final close out project sets, we've got you covered.
Daily observation reports detailing deficiencies and required corrections
Photos of correct construction help build a historical library
Weekly and monthly project summaries help keep teams up to date
Project closeout reports tie the entire project up together in digital form
