Residential structures are being built in vastly different ways today than in past decades, incorporating new materials, techniques, and assemblies. These changes have dramatically altered the way buildings interact with their surrounding environment. Understanding that interaction requires a working knowledge of building science and building envelope design. This full day workshop is designed to provide builders, designers, and code officials with an introduction to building science principles and practices as they relate to the building envelope and current ICC code provisions.
1. Understand the fundamentals of heat/air/moisture flow through the building envelope.
2. Identify general strategies for managing heat/air/moisture flow and constructing healthy, high-performing homes.
3. Analyze the role of building codes in the performance, safety, and energy efficiency of building envelopes.
4. Apply building science principles to construction drawings, details, and mockups in order to identify practical and cost-effective construction methods.
