We understand how frustrating water leaks can be. They can cause damage to interior finishes and can be very frustrating for your residents. Whether it’s from the roof, foundation wall, windows or walls, water leak sources can be difficult to identify and even more difficult to fix. The most common causes we see for leaks include: construction defects; design oversights at transition details; aging building components; damage to building components; and improper previous repairs.
Window replacement projects represent a once in a generation opportunity to add significant value to the appearance and performance of your building. Edison has created a customizable process to help Owners maximize this opportunity and to drive the project to successful completion.
Unlike conventionally reinforced concrete, post-tensioned concrete uses ultra high-strength steel manufactured into multi-wire strands that are used to pre-load the structural member. While post-tensioned structures have benefits such as reduced cracking, thinner slabs and longer spans between columns, they come with unique challenges for repair and maintenance.
Are you considering a major building envelope project such as window replacement, balcony repairs, recladding, or recoating? Let our design team help you visualize various design options, including layouts, textures and colours, at the design stage before construction even begins.
Clients often ask about the impact of new windows, cladding, and mechanical units on building energy use. Energy savings can be used to help offset capital costs and apply for various incentives.
