This course defines and explains building science behind the code for the four control layers of the building envelope: water, air, thermal, and vapor. Participants will then explore typical design principles as well as alternative system assembly approaches to exterior wall design. In addition, presentation covers common attachment strategies for various types of clad-dings, including masonry, rainscreen veneers, and applied/adhered veneers.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will learn the definitions, code, and building science for the water, air, ther-mal, and vapor control layers.
  • Participants will learn principles behind typical design of control layers in exterior wall for water, air, thermal, vapor.
  • Participants will explore wall system assembly design approach to exterior wall design to successfully maintain 4 control layers (water, air, thermal, vapor).
  • Participants will understand attachment strat-egies and building science considerations for masonry, rainscreen veneers, and applied/ adhered veneers.

Chip Bisignaro, Building Envelope Specialist

Chip Bisignaro has been assisting architects with building envelope designs for more than 20 years, the last five at DuPont. Throughout this time frame, he has built consultative experience in optimizing the design of commercial walls with various materials for aesthetics as well as thermal, moisture, air/vapor and building code compliance. Residing in the Philadelphia area, Bisignaro is an active member of local industry groups and a member of various CSI Chapters.
