Building Performance Forensics
TONER Home Matters performs hundreds of Building Performance Forensic projects every year. First, the proprietary process starts with “The Story” from those involved. Then a full evaluation of the structure, its occupant’s behavior and interaction with the space plus the balance between indoor and outdoor environments is conducted. Next, during the evaluation, data will be acquired using tools such as site audit applications, sonar, psychometric tools, and physical techniques. After which, the data and findings are compared against the bank of cases solved to date. Lastly, an executive summary can be provided to explain the building science and forensics of the situation, identify the source of origin, and provide the steps to take in construction order to seek resolution.
THM forensic clients will have access to our established referral base of specialty trades, design companies and builders upon requests. THM can also be contracted to help oversee the implementation of forensic resolutions.
