Strategies in High-Performance Building Envelopes - Vernon

November 14, 2023 (7:30 AM - 12:30 PM) (PST)



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.


This hands-on 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. Due to hands-on training, registration is limited to 35 guests.
