MCA offers a wide variety of comprehensive services to ensure that our clients receive the best results possible. Whether new or existing construction, MCA is prepared to share our expertise in all areas of building enclosure consulting.

A building enclosure, or building envelope, is a combination of exterior systems, assemblies, and materials that work together to provide a weather-resistant shell that separates the interior from the exterior environment. MCA provides optimal solutions for building enclosure challenges by balancing performance, durability, constructability, and cost. MCA understands that the success of each project relies on close collaboration with the Project Owner, Architect, Contractor team (OAC), and our office. We provide our clients with trusted and reliable services in all phases of a project and all periods of a building’s life. Every building enclosure challenge, be it design, construction, or logistics, is a welcome opportunity for our committed group to utilize our multi-disciplined background to provide a distinct solution.

MCA specializes in the following exterior building enclosure systems: Below-grade Waterproofing, Deck and Balcony Waterproofing, Plaza and Podium Waterproofing, Exterior Wall Air and Vapor Barrier Systems, Fenestration Assemblies, and Roofing.
