At Visual Consulting, we are focused on the details:

  • Were the material manufacturer's installation instruction processes followed properly? Were the best-suited materials used for the project?

  • Was it built according to the plans and the specifications created?

  • Was it approved by the engineer and architect?

  • Was the work process documented?

What does being BESI Certified Mean?

We care about giving our clients educated facts. Our experience, plus our expert knowledge will give you the very best outcome possible.

A building envelope is the physical separator between the conditioned and unconditioned environment of a building including the resistance to air, water, heat, light, and noise transfer.

From the foundation to the highest apex of the roof, the building envelope encompasses all aspects of a building’s structure. A structurally sound building envelope is critical to ensure safety and optimize a building’s life expectancy and reduce reparation costs. At the Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI), experts train and certify industry professionals using nearly 30 years of building envelope knowledge and field experience.
