IPS Engineering Group utilizes a unique approach to engineering by specializing in the chemical composition of construction materials as they relate to building envelope water-tightness; i.e.: roofing, glazing, waterproofing, stucco or painting. By employing the use of the right materials, a sustainable watertight structure is achieved.

Specifying inappropriate materials or value-engineering building envelope materials leads to water intrusion of which, in turn, can lead to significant deterioration of the building’s structural integrity as well as litigation.

A huge portion of construction litigation is based on water intrusion, mostly due to failed materials. IPS Engineering Group designs protection from water intrusion and thus, protection from litigation.

Our founder, Mr. Richard ‘Rick’ Clark, is a chemical engineer with 40+ years of experience in the construction industry. He is supported by a highly-trained staff of engineers and technicians. This team has made the IPS Companies one of the foremost authorities on building envelope and water intrusion protection.

Not one leak or building envelope failure has occurred on over 50 million square feet of waterproofing for thousands of high-rise commercial/residential projects adjacent to sea water when the IPS Companies have been in involved in specifying and/or consulting on the building envelope materials.

The development of this technical and physio-chemical umbrella protects the entire team from future water intrusion and/or building material failures.
