Specifications can be prepared for the replacement of these older systems. These specifications exceed current Building Code minimum standards for air and water leakage resistance.
Other requirements include the new window and door systems to be thermally efficient with features such as low-E glass, and thermal glazing units that are argon gas filled and have warm edge spacers. These components are also replaced taking care to ensure the continuity of the building’s air, thermal and moisture barriers.
Brown & Beattie has also been retained to assess, investigate and repair related components and systems such as curtain walls, sloped glazing and skylights.
