Indianapolis Chapter CSI February Chapter Meeting: Building Envelope Consulting

Learning Objectives:

  •          Learn how to identify the basic wall types, their components and how they are utilized.
  •          Learn how to recognize common problem details in design prior to construction in the field.
  •          Understand how independent testing and monitoring during construction can hold contractors responsible for deficient work, and can provide the opportunity for remediation prior to project completion.
  •          Understand how including an envelope consultant on the project team before and during construction can greatly improve the overall performance of the building envelope.


Water intrusion is the most common and damaging dilemma facing buildings of all shapes, sizes and materials.  Incorporating a building envelope consultant during the design and construction process can help to identify and eliminate problematic construction details before they become maintenance nightmares, while also saving building owners, designers, and contractors time and money.  This presentation will explore the role of a building envelope consultant in new construction, detail the envelope consulting process, and provide examples of common problems identified and remediated during the design and construction process.


Dan C. Weekes, AIA, NCARB is a project architect with American Structurepoint in the Investigative Services Group, responsible for investigations and forensic evaluations involving all areas of building construction.  His focus is on building envelope consulting, property condition assessments, construction administration and ADA evaluations.  He also has experience with the design of new facilities and the design and implementation of repair programs to deficient residential and commercial facilities.  Since gaining architectural licensure in Indiana in 2006, Mr. Weekes has taken a “common sense” approach to design, focusing on optimizing building performance rather than aesthetic splendor.
