Shedd Aquarium Curtain Wall Investigation

RRJ was retained by the contractor to perform field air infiltration and water penetration testing of the new curtain wall and insulated core metal wall panel installations at the aquarium’s office addition.

The testing program consisted of a shop drawing and specification review of the relevant portions of the window walls to get familiar with the systems and performance requirements. Two identified areas of the newly installed window walls were selected to conduct air infiltration, water penetration, and hose-type testing.

Testing results and any failures were documented, with repair recommendations, in a final summarized report.
