Airtightness & Moisture Management – Strategies in High Performance Building Envelopes Workshop
In residential and commercial buildings, a well-designed and executed, high performance, continuously sealed envelope contributes to low energy consumption and reduces CO2 emissions. It increases occupant comfort and the building’s long term durability.
The airtightness workshop is a fresh look at the features of resilient and efficient envelope design that examines the key layers that comprise the fabric of the building, and how a well-planned weather, air, and vapor sealing strategy avoids risk and saves money.
Strategies in High-Performance Building Envelopes
Participants will be engaged in a discussion and a hands-on envelope detailing workshop. During these 4-hour, interactive course participants will learn:
- Building science fundamentals and the environmental impacts that affect building performance taught by SIGA Application Engineer
- Building envelope key components & terms
- The importance of a continuous weather & air tightness layer(s)
- Strategies to avoid risk from design to implementation
