ZS was selected as the Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) Agent by the University of Chicago for the future David M. Rubenstein Forum.

ZS will be working in collaboration with the design/construction team comprised of Diller Scofidio + Renfro Architects, Lera Consulting Structural Engineers, Primera Engineers, and Turner Construction. The 97,000-square-foot conference center is expected to break ground in 2018 and be completed in 2019.

ZS’ prime role over the course of the project will be to ensure that the state-of-the-art building designs consistently meet building envelope performance standards for durability and future maintenance. ZS will be responsible for building envelope consulting during the design phase, mock-up testing, ongoing field verification throughout the construction phase, and final pre-occupancy assessments.
