Building Envelope Design


LCI sees the details of the building envelope is a major factor to the design of a building. Without proper protection from the forces of nature, the investment in a building is not fully realized. With our extensive experience in forensic investigation and litigation LCI has had the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others.



The management and oversight of Building Envelope Design and installation is a specialty of LCI Consultants. Our experience in building forensics and defect litigation provide us with an informed perspective that we apply to our projects. Whether the project is new from the ground up or a building envelope improvement, our extensive background influences our design recommendations.


With high construction costs of today’s economy, it is imperative to get it right the first time. It is very expensive to go back and repair building defects. The building envelope is one of the most important fundamental components of the architectural design and it exists for aesthetic reasons and more importantly to protect the systems within from the elements outside. If the building envelope is not weather-tight, it is only a matter of time before damage will occur to the systems of the building.
