Building Science Corporation

Our Services

Building Science Corporation is a building science consulting and full service architecture firm with clients throughout North America. We specialize in building technology consulting for all types of buildings including commercial, institutional and residential. Our focus is preventing and resolving problems related to building design, construction and operation. We are internationally recognized for our expertise in moisture dynamics, indoor air quality, and building failure forensic investigations. We are also on the leading edge of the design of sustainable buildings and communities. We believe in promoting energy efficiency and environmental responsibility within the constraints of marketable and affordable building technology.

BSC began its practice and established its reputation in building science by investigating problems related to the durability and performance of buildings. Forensic investigations of performance problems such as mold, rot, decay, odors, uncontrolled humidity, and poor indoor air quality remain a critical part of our practice, especially with the increasing complexity of architectural designs and the continuous development of more advanced (and often more moisture sensitive) building materials.

BSC provides whole building design assistance in the preliminary design and design development phases as well as detail review and specific system design through the development of the contract documents. During construction we schedule site visits as needed to observe the installation of mock-ups, specific building systems, and any complicated details, as well as to respond to any unanticipated field conditions or design changes.
