Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) assessments include the evaluation of the building systems with respect to thermal comfort and biological/chemical pollutants that may have an adverse effect on the health and/or productivity of the occupants. RJB experienced professionals can provide comprehensive building system surveys to include inspection of the Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems and exterior building envelope to identify areas of concern, such as moisture and mold growth that may impact the IAQ and provide remedial corrective recommendations.

RJB promotes value-added solutions to environmental liability situations for clients from an initial Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) due diligence for real estate transactions to the decommissioning of an industrial facility or redevelopment of a Brownfield property with known or suspected site contamination. A team of professionals reviews pre-existing site documentation, performs site assessments, and conducts air, water, and soil monitoring as may be indicated.
Based on the findings, feasibility studies and the remedial design and monitoring are implemented
in compliance with Federal and State regulatory requirements.
- Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs)
RJB provides for the recognition, evaluation, and control of occupational hazards that may cause illness or injury to workers or may adversely affect citizens of the surrounding community. Whether it involves a chemical biological or physical hazard, we have the expertise required to assess workplace exposures, perform job hazard analyses, navigate regulatory requirements, and promote safe operations for our clients. RJB’s industrial hygiene services are managed by an in-house Certified Industrial Hygienist with sampling and assessment methods developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration ), National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and other industry standards and guidelines.

Building Sciences can be defined as the collection of scientific knowledge and
experience that focuses on the analysis, evaluation and control of the physical agents affecting
buildings and typically includes the detailed analysis of building materials, building envelope,
Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning systems (HVAC), natural and electrical
lighting, acoustics, moisture, and indoor air quality.
The predominant issue of building assessment that RJB addresses is moisture burden, both from interior sources and moisture incursion through building envelope components. Moisture impacts can occur during new construction to unprotected building materials or to materials unprotected after installation.
