101 Series: No Thermal Bridges (WED 12/6, 9am PT/ 12pm ET)

Air Management in a Warm/Humid Climate

Air Management in a Warm/Humid Climate

Our November Construction Tech presentation is a case study on the Beacon Hill Passive House, the first certified Passive House (Phius) in the state of Missouri. While the team had previously deployed just about every type of wall assembly out there, experimented with different waterproofing and air sealing strategies, tried different glazing packages... this was the first home where they made the commitment to certify and it was a challenge to cross the threshold. David Schleicher and Joe Nickels (Kala Built) will hone in on their strategic approach to control and manage air. They will give an overview of the strategy that was doable in the Kansas City market: it had to be economically viable, it had to appraise, it had to provide the performance level desired for a structure in one of the most challenging climates in the country with hot/humid summers and cold/dry winters. David and Joe will be joined by M. Walker of Austin, Texas based Positive Energy.

This free presentation will take place on Wednesday, November 29th at 9am PT / 12pm ET and will be followed by a lively Q+A session. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from industry leaders and engage with the PHA community. See you there!
