Building Enclosure Consulting Services
Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc. engaged Gale to perform an evaluation of their headquarters building to identify the extent of the deficiencies in the existing composite fiberboard siding and to provide repair and replacement options that would reduce future building maintenance, increase energy performance, and improve the thermal comfort of the building occupants. The building was experiencing a non-continuous air barrier that allowed air exfiltration at the wall sill and at the roof eaves. It also was suffering from missing insulation and wet/damaged siding and substrates. Following our evaluation, Gale performed design and construction phase services related to the installation of a continuous vapor permeable air barrier, continuous exterior insulation, fiber cement siding and trim, and new vinyl-clad wood windows.
