LEEP Wildfire Resistant Builder Training

June 18, 2024 (7:30 AM - 12:30 PM) (PDT)


This educational event will focus on construction-based solutions for building wildfire-resistant homes in British Columbia. Experts from RDH Building Sciences, Natural Resources Canada, and others in the field will discuss how to incorporate non-combustible building materials, envelope details, fire-rated wall assemblies, and exterior fire prevention measures into Part 9 housing construction. 

There will be three technical based presentations: 

1) Envelope details and materials. Namely, points of entry in the home where embers can penetrate the structure, and the substitution of combustible building materials for non-combustible ones. 

2) Constructing a one-hour fire-rated wall assembly. Looking at the different solutions and materials that can be incorporated into a wall assembly to achieve a one-hour fire rating. 

3) Measures that can be taken outside of the house to improve wildfire-resistance. 

A series of infographics and guides, created by NRCan, will be highlighted throughout the event. Participants will receive access to these resources to support the implementation of wildfire-resistant construction measures.

This event has been approved for 3.5 CPD points.
