JAMES H. OLIVER SAFETY COMPLEX
Building Forensics &
Hooksett, New Hampshire
The Turner Group was retained in the fall of 2008 to address multiple building component failures. Built in 1996, this Complex was experiencing excessive cold air infiltration, causing freezing of heating and fire protection piping, moisture infiltration, a failed storm drainage conveyance system, structural system failures, insect infiltration, and degrading building materials.
Turner Group's building scientists analyzed the root cause of the problems, developed innovative solutions to them, and achieved public agency approval to retain a qualified Construction Management firm (CM). The remediation work will produce a high performance building assembly that is projected to exceed minimum energy performance standards by 30% and will provide the town with a rapid Return on Investment (ROI).
