From a cladding perspective, a rainscreen assembly is a practical way to achieve a high-performing building envelope. The popularity of wood-plastic composites (WPCs) in envelopes has increased substantially year over year and, in some cases, has become the cladding of choice for architects thanks to the material’s performance characteristics, sustainable construction, durability, and life-cycle attributes.
Designers of new construction and renovation projects sometimes prefer to use exterior-grade waterproofing and roofing products within interior space for improved performance compared to typical interior-grade waterproofing products.
Protected Membrane Roof Assemblies (PMRAs) have benefitted from more than a half century of innovations and improvements. PMRAs developed in sophistication along with new building materials such as modified bituminous roofing membranes and single-ply roofing materials; and new applications such as vegetative roof assemblies (VRAs, or green roofs) and stormwater retention and detention assemblies (blue roofs).
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.
