Design of the Building Components:

The basic function of a building is to provide structurally sound and environmentally controlled spaces to house and protect occupants and contents. If this basic function is not achieved, it is because some aspect of the building has failed. Exponent’s architects, engineers, and scientists have a broad range of expertise with failures in the built environment, and providing clients with in-depth investigations of individual building components, as well as the interdependence of components with each other and the outside environment. Failures of basic building functions can range from defects in single components such as windows, to extensive deficiencies in an entire exterior wall system, to the inability of HVAC systems to properly condition the air. The source of these deficiencies can include inadequate design, improper execution of the work, defective materials, or simply normal and expected aging perhaps coupled with lack of maintenance.
