Mold and Moisture Prevention
Published by NCARB
“An alarming number of buildings suffer from moisture and mold problems. No single document can address all the issues related to moisture intrusion and mold growth. However, we believe this monograph addresses a significant proportion of the problems that architects will encounter in the design and construction of a typical commercial building.”
— J. David Odom, as quoted on NCARB.org
This manual looks at the key issues that can help owners, designers, and contractors work together to improve decision-making. Design professionals will discover what they need to do in order to develop good building performance.
The end of the schematic design and design development chapters have sections outlining documents, steps, and criteria that should be completed before the next phase in the process is begun.
The final design chapter has a peer review section that includes a checklist to provide designers and builders with independent design reviews and technical guidance to promote technically sound, budget-conscious designs.
