Pie Exceeds 10 Million Square Feet of Air Barrier Testing
Arvada, Colorado (September 25, 2013) – Pie Consulting & Engineering (Pie) today announced the company has accomplished air barrier testing on more than 10 million gross square feet of buildings, comprising a total of 220+ commercial structures since 2008.
The milestone completion of 10,000,000 square feet is comparable in size to the square footage of 173 football fields.
Pie’s air barrier experience has encompassed a diverse range of both client and building types including: department of defense, federal government, local governments, industrial, commercial, institutional, higher education, K-12, healthcare, and private industry facilities.
Pie’s projects have spanned coast to coast and include an existing Missile Command Control Center on Meck Island, Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands to a U.S Army Ranger Training barrack building at Camp Rudder, FL. Recent Pie project awards which will include whole building air barrier testing include the new U.S. Embassy in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and the Fort Bliss Replacement Hospital in El Paso, Texas.
“It is hard to believe that Pie has been involved in consulting and testing the air barrier in over 10 million gross square feet and more than 220+ buildings in just the last 5 years alone. In addition to our staff’s expertise in building envelopes, their continual efforts to identify and implement efficiencies in our services as well as our streamlined equipment logistics and mobilization processes have no doubt set us apart. We look forward to what the next 5 years will bring with new and emerging trends in the building enclosure industry.” – Eric Amhaus, Pie Principal.
