About this event

  • 4 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

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
    • Building envelope key components & terms
    • The importance of a continuous weather & airtightness layer(s)
    • Strategies to avoid risk from design to implementation
