Designing wall systems is more complicated than ever. As designers leverage building science best practices to balance performance, protection, and efficiency. Benjamin Obdyke is driven to helping the industry Build Better™, and that starts by arming our design and construction customers with tools, education, and support.

Here’s a look at the range of services to help architects navigate wall and roof systems.

Virtual Training Consultation

High-performance walls start with a systems approach at the design stage. To help cut through the confusion, Benjamin Obdyke can meet with you in advance to discuss best practices for your specific project. We’ll do a plan review and examine details, then provide a recommendation of systems strategies and best practices for climate, cladding, insulation, and weather and air barriers. Using our wall mockups, we’ll also show you in real time how the different layers will go together. Contact us to schedule a session.

Code Compliance Assistance

In some areas, architects may have to talk to code officials about new approaches to compliance. Benjamin Obdyke can provide documentation and support in communicating how products and systems meet or exceed requirements.
