In recognition that a sound building envelope is important to the comfort, health, and safety of its occupants, we are committed to providing services that complement those of your mechanical and environmental specialists.

We are analysts, specifiers, and designers of wall systems employing technical information from the International Code Councils family of codes including the IRC, IBC and IECC. In addition, we regard FM Global, Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL), ASHRAE, ASTM, ANSI, NFRC, Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), Federal Specifications (FS), and state and local building codes.

Our in-house thermal imaging and radiology services employ infrared and nuclear technology for analysis of building surfaces and components, including walls. Please consider our qualified experience with this excellent means of non-destructive testing.

Our assessments of EIFS, DEFS, curtain walls, masonry, fenestration, sealants and sealers, roofing, and architectural metals create a solid foundation for maintenance management planning & budgeting.

Stoughton High School Wall Repair

Client: Stoughton Area School District 
Location: Stoughton, WI 
Completed: 2012
Cost: $20,224.00
FEI Services: Analysis, Design, and Construction Administration 

Contractor: Zander Insulation, Inc.

Stoughton Area School District maintenance planning observed declining conditions surrounding the pre-cast concrete walls surrounding the high school field house. A study by FEI ensued. FEI determined cracking inherent to fabrication, exacerbated by our climate’s influence, produced irreversible effects. This rendered the wall panels subject to ultimate failure should action be postponed.

FEI designed a clad-over system consisting of exterior insulation and finish (EIFS). EIFS adds energy-efficiency and aesthetics while preserving the core structure.

FEI provided design and construction administration services.
