Rex Cyphers, Principal, received Award of Appreciation from ASTM

Rex Cyphers, Principal, received an Award of Appreciation from ASTM International’s committee E06 on Performance of Buildings recognizing his work in the development and publication of ASTM E3069-17, Standard Guide for Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Mass Masonry Walls for Changes to the Thermal and Moisture Properties of the Wall.  Based on his experience within the industry, Rex saw a need for providing standardized guidance for evaluating existing mass masonry walls when designated for retrofits that alter the thermal or vapor properties of the wall to ensure the long-term performance of the wall assembly is maintained.  At the presentation of the award, Rex was commended for his communication with committee chairs and persistence throughout the process development of the standard.
