Evaluation and air infiltration / water penetration testing of the exterior curtain wall's building envelope weather resistance to determine the cause of condensation observed in the interior modular curtain wall units of this expansion tower during construction. The exterior wall system behavior was investigated using infrared thermography, thermal analysis, and the use of in-wall thermal instrumentation. Repairs were implemented to avoid delay of the facility opening.
