CBRE Assessment & Consulting Services (ACS), a division of the Valuation and Advisory Services group at CBRE, has announced the development of a new group capable of performing assessment and providing consulting services for Building Envelopes. Michael Bock, RBEC, has been tapped as a Director to manage the Building Envelope Group in Kansas City, Missouri. In addition, Logan Christensen joined the CBRE staff with a focus on adding services and assisting with the development and training of the Building Envelope Team.

With the advent of this group, the Assessment and Consulting Services (ACS) Group can now offer assessment and consulting services for Building Envelopes. A typical Building Envelope, or enclosure, is comprised of multiple façade and roof systems working together in a variety of ways to keep a building’s interior protected from the elements. The CBRE Building Envelope staff are trained to perform a variety of specialized tests to evaluate systems, identify issues and provide cost effective solutions. In addition, the staff can currently provide air infiltration and water penetration tests, leak investigations and roof moisture surveys, roof and façade asset management maintenance and capital planning, and on-site inspection of repairs and/or installations.

“We are delighted to welcome both Michael and Logan to the Assessment & Consulting team in order to broaden our expertise by offering a Building Envelope service. Both of these professionals come equipped with the critical skills necessary to make the team a success,” said Rob Occhiogrossi, managing director of CBRE Assessment & Consulting Services. “Michael’s vast experience will certainly be appreciated by those with whom he will be interacting. We are equally excited to utilize Logan’s engineering expertise as we build this service line. We eagerly look forward to the contributions each of these individuals will make to our overall Assessment and Consulting team.”
