Ocean Spray Cranberries Headquarters

Building Enclosure Consulting Services
Lakeville-Middleboro, MA

Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc. engaged Gale to perform an evaluation of their headquarters building to identify the extent of the deficiencies in the existing composite fiberboard siding, and to provide repair and replacement options that would reduce future building maintenance, increase energy performance, and improve thermal comfort of the building occupants. Gale provided building enclosure evaluation design, bidding and construction administration services including review of shop drawings and submittals, attendance at pre-installation and progress meetings, and ongoing consultation. Building issues included a non-continuous air barrier that allowed air exfiltration at the wall sill and roof eaves, missing insulation, and wet and damaged siding and substrates.

Gale’s Services:

  • Removal of existing cladding down to the existing sheathing
  • Removal of exterior non-thermally broken aluminum windows and doors
  • Installation of a continuous vapor permeable air barrier, continuous exterior insulation, fiber cement siding and trim, and new vinyl clad wood windows
