ORLANDO, Fla., April 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- It appears that as the building and construction industry comes out of the hibernation that has been the norm since 2009, that it is deja vu all over again. Buildings are being built repeating the same design and construction deficiencies of the past and this is leading to mold and moisture problems. How could this industry still find itself making these basic mistakes? Certainly the answers to these issues have been well published and known for many years.
Nevertheless, it seems that many of the largest design and construction firms lost many of their key employees and the institutional knowledge that kept their projects out of trouble during the Great Recession. Jokingly, when the work dried up, we find that some of these key thought leaders were forced to run putt-putt attractions in Branson, Missouri or open coffee shops in places like Deland, Florida.
George Dubose, a building forensics expert for LBFG recently stated, "We know we can prevent buildings from failing because we can fix them once they do fail. Building performance can be highly predictable, and tools like a peer review can help to address these issues from the earliest phases of any building project."
This new round of catastrophic mold and moisture building failures is an unfortunate repeat of history.
Firms can no longer rely upon the legacy partners to deliver this information to the next generation, firms must find good alternatives quickly for the sake of their projects and the viability of the firm's future. One of the best and quickest fixes is the implementation of third party peer reviews. A peer review makes sure that design and construction firms get the right information to the right people at the right time.
LBFG has provided mold and moisture problem avoidance for buildings to owners and contractors for and developers worldwide and has project experience in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, Middle East, Southeast Asia and Europe.
