Improper design, poor construction techniques, and lack of maintenance can allow chlorinated water to migrate into the pool’s concrete shell and embedded structural reinforcement. To ensure the longevity of the pool structure and its components, design professionals must be familiar with state-of-the-art construction technology and performance-based design.
Formed architectural metal assemblies can be produced in a wide array of geometric styles, surfaces, materials, and finishes. The anchor clips required for these assemblies must also be suitable to accommodate a variety of service conditions, structural substrates, and material finishes for strong and durable serviceability.
Roof enclosures traditionally have the largest litigation potential in the construction industry due to complexities in design, application, and environmental exposure. Development of a self-drying roof enclosure would minimize the litigation potential and provide additional benefits, such as increased roof resiliency, reduced financial burden, and minimal impact on the environment.
Handling drainage and sealing penetrations are two critical tasks, among many, that must be addressed to ensure there are no leaks. When designing or specifying blindside conditions, it is best to not jump into it blind.
Roof maintenance does not have to be a complicated and time-consuming endeavor. With qualified people, it can be cost-effective and go a long way toward extending the life of a roof, as problems can be caught early and properly addressed.
