Commercial Building Enclosures - NOW ONLINE
9:00 AM
This program will focus on the performance characteristics of new building enclosure approaches and technologies to create enclosures that manage thermal and moisture loads to ensure building durability as well as energy efficiency. This program will demonstrate methods to enhance and integrate the four control layers required in commercial buildings: 1. Water control layer, weather resistive barriers, rain screens; 2. Air control layer, effective air barrier systems, including installation and air barrier requirements; 3. Thermal control layer, fenestration options and insulation systems, as well as installation protocols; 4. Vapor control layer, intentional and unintended vapor retarders.
