BSC originally developed its business and established its reputation investigating problems related to the durability and performance of buildings. From our understanding of air and moisture flow within buildings, indoor air quality investigations and assessments are a regular component of our services. As a result of our experience in moisture migration, we have specific expertise in conducting microbial, mold, and moisture investigations in commercial and institutional facilities located in southern and humid climates.

Through forensic investigations, BSC has gained considerable expertise in the application of rain screen principles, drainage planes and in the application of air flow retarder and vapor diffusion retarder systems. We have developed industry-recognized protocols to determine building and interstitial air pressure relationships and specialized techniques for the pressurization and depressurization of building enclosures.
