Pie Goes International in the Marshall Islands

Pie recently augmented its international services by successfully completing building air tightness testing and repair consultation on an 87,000-square-foot 1960s-era facility located in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.  The federal project for Building 5050 on Meck Island, Kwajalein Atoll, focused exclusively on evaluating the airtight performance of the command/control building envelope for the purposes of mitigating potentially unacceptable levels of airborne contaminants from reaching the building interior during missile launches.  As a result of Pie’s services, air leakage at the site was reduced by 70%.

Pie incorporated a three-phase testing approach on this project, including preliminary benchmark testing and diagnostics, on-site consultation during facility repairs, and final testing to confrim an acceptable level of air tightness could be achieved for the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Range Safety Engineer.  According to Matthew Heron, Pie Project Manager, “the testing, diagnostics, and repairs to building 5050-Meck Island illustrate another added benefit of building air tightness beyond energy efficiency that could be of extreme value to other building end-users.”
