While we do not know the story behind this project, there are three different water resistive barriers (WRB’s) in this picture. RRCL strives to support Architects and Designers to maintain simplicity in their enclosure design. Multiple products can lead to compatibility issues, varying performance (diffusion, air tightness transitions, durability, etc.) and general confusion on site.
Contact RRCL to support your enclosure design. While we suggest RRCL joins the project during pre-design, we have the capability to on-board at any stage in your project.
Last month we took apart two Ultimate Air RecoupAerator 200DX whole house ERV units that required specific maintenance; one a new motor, the other new bearings. When taking these apart, we were reminded how elegant a design the units were. We were also reminded how dirty they get after 5+ years of use! In case you are wondering, yes, we successfully repaired both units and they have been running smoothly.
RRCL has expertise in mechanical ventilating devices – balancing, commissioning and maintenance. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We were recently assessing the building envelope of an office building in downtown Ottawa. As we climbed up the roof ladder and surveyed our surroundings (our normal procedure when going on roofs), I noticed this special view.
Contact RRCL to conduct building envelope and roofing assessments. Whether you need long-term repair and maintenance forecasting, or an immediate water penetration investigation, RRCL is an industry leader in enclosure performance and forensics.
RRCL, in partnership with Coefficient Building Science, is leading the industry in big building air-tightness testing. Whether you need a whole building test, guarded floor or guarder suite, contact RRCL or Coefficient and we will support your project needs.
Here is an incredible example of metal cladding corrosion at one of our projects visited in late June 2020. Wasted from an industrial process was stored for long periods below this area. Corrosive gasses accumulated at the top of the warehouse building and caused the deterioration to the metal cladding.
