Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Water intrusion prevention plan (WIPP) should include more permanent “dog house” enclosures from field verification (survey) through dry-in to ensure minimally runoff prevention from primary rain systems.  Teams should work with roofing contractor and steel fabricator to develop a system that is further developed than cut and patch systems.  This would also apply to stub columns.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

At time of steel survey have a “dog house” construction plan to be installed.
