Building Envelope Consulting, LLC has the pleasure of working with Forrester Construction Company at the South County Police Station and Animal Shelter in Lorton, Virginia.

We performed ASTM D7877 Electronic Leak Detection at the elevator pit. We tested the vertical membrane, Carlisle 860/861, sheet-applied waterproofing membrane at the elevator pit foundation. It was a small area and the membrane was in good shape with no breaches, just not enough sealant at the seams and a couple of fishmouths. We will return for another visit to test the seams.
