Join the AIANY Building Enclosure Council for two consecutive seminars with renowned building scientists Dr. John Straube and Dr. Joseph Lstiburek. With their combined expertise, Straube and Lstiburek will help attendees understand what constitutes a high-performance building. Day 1 will address fundamental questions about what is important in high-performance design, while Day 2 will focus on the successful implementation of these strategies. Read more about this event and register for Day 1 here.
September 13 Day 2 | Details and Implementation of High Performance Buildings Speaker: Dr. John Straube, University of Waterloo/RDH Building Science
How do designers achieve higher levels of insulation, reduced thermal bridging, and better airtightness? What are high-performance windows, and how are they selected and installed? What are the requirements for air tightness? How do you select proper air and vapor barriers? How do you select suitable HVAC systems for high-performance projects?
Day 2 will also cover Passive House insulation as well as issues around cladding attachment, balconies, and parapets.
AIA CES: 7.5 LU/HSW In order to receive credits for this seminar, attendees will be asked to sign in at the beginning and end of the day.
