Building Envelope Commissioning Is Crucial for Data Centers

Water penetration and condensation can cripple a building – especially data centers.

What can be done to mitigate the risk? Tim Zelazny points out the benefits of building envelope commissioning (BECx) in his article “Mission Critical Operation Water Damage Control” for Mission Critical magazine. Zelazny notes that BECx is a low-cost additional service when compared to the cost of a down facility, helps create a quality building from design through occupancy and is worth 2 LEED points under LEED v4.
