Building envelope engineering and water infiltration expertise
Roofs, windows, walls and foundations are all parts of a building envelope. Their integrity is often the only barrier to prevent a loss related to water and air infiltration that may result in claims. For the last several years, the payouts associated to losses due to direct water damage and from infiltrations exceed those for fires. CEP structural and building sciences engineers have the expertise to target the causes related to water and air infiltration with investigation techniques using infrared technologies and computational analysis on the performance of the envelope.
