Agricultural Science Building – Inspection & Assessment

As students in AE 537, Building Performance Failures and Forensic Techniques, you were asked to visit the site of the Ag. Science Building and perform a preliminary condition assessment with an emphasis on the site walls and the building facade system.  Working in small groups, you documented the condition of various building components and reported them in a short summary report.  Some of the original working drawings were provided for your review to help in your understanding of the systems.

The second phase of this assignment is to participate in a discussion forum on this page (as individuals) to describe and report what your observations were and identify any trends or concerns discovered.  As individuals, this forum is open for your comments, questions and observations.  You are encouraged to discuss potential causes of any deterioration or problems you report as well as providing links and citing appropriate sources.  While the team reports are not being  provided, some photos will be posted and numbered or named for reference purposes if it helps your discussion to reference them.
