Grand View Lodge – Nisswa, Minnesota
Building Science and Forensics, and Design Performance Analysis
CR-BPS was hired to provide consulting services throughout the design and construction of a new pool building at Grand View Lodge near Nisswa, Minnesota. CR-BPS team members provided design assistance and recommendations pertaining to construction details, material selections, and building assembly configurations. While the building was under construction, CR-BPS team members visited the site to observe, test, and document the condition of the building’s thermal boundary. Testing of the building's thermal boundary was accomplished by using infrared thermography while a blower door apparatus negatively pressurized the building. CR-BPS provided a written report that included design solutions, observations made during site visits, thermal boundary test results, additional issues identified by the CR-BPS team, and recommended solutions and actions.
