Reliable advice for building enclosures

Decades of helping clients address building issues means we have the expertise needed to look at building envelopes from the earliest conceptual stages of design and provide details that perform. We bring a holistic approach — we understand how building envelopes function and how they integrate with other building components throughout their lifespan.

We have investigated and repaired hundreds of existing building enclosures of all vintages, from heritage masonry to glass curtain wall. Our specialists bring this accrued knowledge to every project. Our services range from investigation of specific localized areas of distress to complete enclosure assessments and rehabilitations.

The scope of our services are tailored to meet the needs and requirements of the project.

New building enclosure designs for today's needs

To meet the demanding performance metrics in today’s building codes, the design of building enclosures has become increasingly complex. Our effective, simple, buildable solutions meet these challenges. We stay at the forefront of evolving building science technology and knowledgeable about advanced cladding materials. As leaders, we set standards for successful implementation of these new materials and techniques.

RJC also stays actively involved in many committees and code writing bodies, with many of our specialists serving as chairs and board members of these organizations.
