It's a widely used language that makes the web what it is today, allowing for websites to be more responsive, dynamic, and interactive. Disabling JavaScript takes websites back to a time when they were simple documents without any other features.

What are the advantages of using JavaScript?

Speed. Since JavaScript is an 'interpreted' language, it reduces the time required by other programming languages like Java for compilation. JavaScript is also a client-side script, speeding up the execution of the program as it saves the time required to connect to the server.

Project Description:

A condominium development located in northern New Jersey was experiencing water infiltration and severe cracking in the concrete foundation walls and floors in the garages. In support of the Association's overall litigation approach, Falcon performed concrete crack mapping, concrete petrographic analysis, and overall concrete evaluation.

Investigation and Design by Falcon:

  • Falcon performed an overall evaluation on the concrete foundation walls and floors and gathered information on the existing garage site, including dimensions, crack locations and measurements, poor consolidation areas, expansion joint locations etc.
  • Using the information gathered, Falcon created a concrete crack map to evaluate the severity of the concrete cracking and consolidation issue. Falcon had ten concrete core samples taken, of which six were petrographically analyzed for water to cement ratio, air void volume, and aggregate distribution.
  • Falcon reviewed the applicable International Building Code and American Society of Testing Materials standards pertaining to concrete foundation walls and floors to support the Condominium Association's claim for construction defects and resultant damages

Summary of Findings:

The analysis of the crack mapping allowed Falcon to prove the construction defects of improper placement of control joints and concrete curling due to improper curing. The concrete coring allowed Falcon to prove that the control joints were too shallow and the expansion joint was not installed properly.
