Building Enclosure Consultation / Peer Review and Construction Period Services
Gale was engaged by The Institute of Contemporary Art to perform a peer review of the prime Architect’s design drawings relating to the components of the building enclosure (i.e., roofing, air barrier, waterproofing sealants, etc.) at the award winning museum located on Boston’s waterfront. Gale assisted ICA and the Architect in the development of project specific detailing, most notably at the interface of vapor barriers, air barriers and other waterproofing components. Gale performed mock-up and in-field testing for air and water infiltration performed in accordance with ASTM and AAMA standards.
