A building is a complex bringing together of many parts, designed and constructed by many different people over a long period of time. How does an owner know that decisions are being made up front that will assure the best results and avoid problems? No owner intentionally sets out to have a building failure.
Knowing the whole building and understanding what set of decisions most likely results in building moisture problems is a skill Liberty has developed due to focusing on one thing for a long time – building moisture problems. That’s why governing bodies like NCARB, private owners like Walt Disney World, and global organizations like NAVFAC have asked Liberty experts to provide them with moisture problem avoidance tools like training and manuals. The result? Over $20B in construction to be completed based upon these bodies of work.
Examples of Liberty’s Problem Avoidance Services include:
• The Walt Disney Corporation has retained Liberty’s staff since 1981 to assist with their highly complex construction on over 500 worldwide projects, including those at Walt Disney World, EuroDisney, Hong Kong Disneyland, Disney’s Caribbean island (Castaway Cay), Disney’s Hawaii Resort (Aulani), and Disneyland California.
• In 1991 Liberty’s staff wrote Disney’s “best practices” manual that has been updated and is still used today. Only a firm that consistently exceeds expectations can serve as a 30-year consultant for one of the world’s most sophisticated building owners on their most demanding projects around the globe.
• Liberty’s staff has authored seven manuals on moisture/mold avoidance and remedial correction. The clients that have retained us to write these manuals include: the U.S. Navy, Walt Disney World, and the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB – the organization that trains registered architects worldwide). Over 75,000 of these manuals have been distributed worldwide.
“It is clear that while most know a part of the building well, Liberty knows the building well from the inside out – and that always gives us the best results.”
