PBC has many years of experience constructing buildings. As such, there have been numerous encounters with product specific requirements. However, you just can’t remember everything. Therefore PBC utilizes the electronic media as much as anyone in the business. Having membership in construction organizations also allows us to receive regular updates on building codes, manufacturer’s products, industry standards, etc. Even with the abundance of information available on the internet, certain product failures or repairs require input from product manufacturers.
PBC has built a relationship with many industry specific product manufacturers and industry trade organizations. Therefore, when a specific allegation is noted or repair cited, PBC will contact a person in that industry, or at that manufacturer for clarification. At times, PBC will obtain correspondence discussing manufacturer requirements, or visit the manufacturer’s facility to obtain production/testing specific information.
