Join this presentation for an in-depth investigation into the design and construction of air tight, energy efficient, exceptionally comfortable buildings. Air tight construction can be achieved through many different materials and components; the key is an identified air barrier that is continuous with intentional, well-sealed penetrations. Unintended gaps in an air barrier can be the result of poor design details and/or poor quality of construction which can compromise a structure’s durability.
1. Mitigate indoor air quality challenges during design.
2. Learn heating, cooling and ventilation strategies for different building types and budgets.
3. Identify products and materials with low emissions that won’t compromise durability.
4. Understand the role of third party verification during design, construction, and test out.
