HISTORIC building envelope services

GRLA is experienced at working with condominium communities throughout New England on projects both large and small. We understand the nuances and unique factors that can make or break a condominium building envelope project.
GRLA has been providing building envelope services to buildings on the National Historic Register
building envelope investigations
The building envelope sciences team at GRLA routinely performs investigations of building envelope problems at condominium communities. We are proficient at diagnosing problems with:
- roofing - leaks, blow offs, ice dams
- windows - leaks, drafts
- wall cladding (siding) - peeling paint, rot, deteriorated trim
- attics - leaks, insulation issues
GRLA performs condominium transition studies to evaluate the condition of the buildings, site improvements, and related facilities to inform project closeout negotiations with the developer, and assist with future capital planning.
Reserve studies similarly document conditions of common property elements at the community to assist with future capital planning and to meet the requirements of funding providers. GRLA performs both initial reserve studies, as well as periodic reserve study reviews and updates.
