Aecon Buildings, Inc.

Background

The building's exterior walls include a reinforced concrete frame with brick masonry veneer, aluminum storefront windows, precast concrete panels, and reinforced concrete masonry unit (CMU) infill.

Solution

WJE engineers reviewed the building envelope design to identify and help resolve potential water leakage problems and cladding integration issues during construction. The engineers also provided construction period services, including review of cladding shop drawings and periodic observations of the building envelope work, to provide a measure of confidence that the as-built construction properly reflected WJE's general recommendations.
