Construction managers discuss building plans

UL Solutions commissioning services help you ensure maximum lifespan of your siding systems. We also offer various valuation services to enable you to plan accurately and reduce the risk of costly structural damage.

Commissioning of buildings

Reduce the risk of performance issues and ensure maximum lifespan of installed cladding systems with our cladding commissioning services. We support building owners, managers and insurers in North America during the construction phase to reduce the risk of unexpected cladding performance issues.

Benefits of Cladding Commissioning Services

During the planning and construction phase, our commissioning services help to keep long-term operating and repair costs low by ensuring high product durability and performance.

We offer:

  • Design support and peer reviews of construction documentation to identify improvement opportunities
  • Assess the performance of proposed facade cladding systems prior to final fabrication and on-site installation
  • Design reviews to identify materials, techniques and details that should be changed
  • On-site testing at the time of cladding installation to assess if the completed installation meets performance requirements

Forensic examinations of facade cladding

Forensic examinations of facade cladding can help you identify the causes of premature performance problems and identify cost-effective solutions for remedial action.

Forensic investigations help solve problems such as: e.g.:

  • Water ingress through roofs or windows
  • Condensation on interior surfaces and dangerous ice formation on exterior surfaces
  • Loss of insulation, which can affect the quality of life and/or cause water pipes to freeze
  • glass damage
  • Corrosion of fasteners or masonry
  • pest infestation, e.g. B. by fungus gnats or ladybugs, which can affect the satisfaction of the residents

Structural assessments of existing buildings

We can assist you in your cladding renewal planning and provide structural assessments to reduce the risk of escalating costs and damage caused by premature cladding performance issues. Identify cladding components that, due to their condition, pose a health and safety hazard and require immediate attention. We support you in building planning and help you control your operating costs by providing you with reliable schedules for regular repairs or quick, effective solutions to unexpected problems.

Due diligence and asset management planning

For property owners and financiers, we provide detailed and timely Property Condition Assessment (PCA) reports.

Property condition assessment includes:

  • Evaluation of structural features, physical performance and system properties of buildings and their properties
  • The PCAs are performed in accordance with ASTM E-2018-15, "Guide to Property Condition Assessment: Basic Process for Property Condition Assessment".
  • Estimate of the cost of necessary repair work to repair defective structural elements or problem areas
  • Evaluation of the building structure, facade cladding, interior fittings, electrical and mechanical systems and exterior areas
  • Identification of cladding impairments that would be identified during due diligence on a potential building purchase and would have a financial impact
  • Determining the schedule and capital costs required to maintain a facade system over its lifetime and to replace it at end of life

Our reserve and maintenance planning services include:

  • Evaluating the common elements and preparing a detailed report
  • Prepare a cash flow analysis and provide supporting documents for Form 15
  • Reserve planning update
  • Technical audits
  • Advice and planning support for the elimination of identified deficiencies
