Types of Buildings
Building Analyst Group Inc, has troubleshooted, installed or inspected just about every type of building. We have traveled the country and have worked in nearly every climate zone. This means we have been involved in various types of building materials, structures and weather conditions. Our work is conducted in house and not farmed out to sub contractors unless we need a second opinion. Or we need an engineer for structural upon finding issues related to that area.
Most engineering firms that conduct commercial inspections will sub out most of the work acting as the general contractor. There is nothing wrong with that, but it does tell you they do not have all the experience required to do the work themselves.
From small commercial buildings to large infrastructures, we are well equipped to provide the highest level of inspections & energy assessments to buildings.
Knowledge with experience is always the right decision. Factors that must be considered on larger structures such as water sheds, rain screens, structural,wind loads, snow loads, solar loading, ventilation, cladding and glazing is considered different.
For larger structures concrete and steel is the primary materials. In order to efficiently inspect welding joints, sizematic rods, vibration testing, bolts and fasteners we need full access to all areas of the building. In some cases samples of concrete "core samples" must be tested. Soil samples are sometimes requested.. Welding joints should be inspected. Vibration testing on the structure. All of this is done in conjunction to the interior components engineering drawings and blueprints. Then we move on to electrical, plumbing,HVAC-R, makeup air, ventilation, mechanical, chemical storage rooms. Most of this type of sampling is done in house. We will outsource the testing to certified labs.
