Do you want to design smarter, be a great partner to your contractor, make better use of limited resources, and avoid common design failures?

About ten years into professional practice as a building scientist, Christine Williamson noticed that her classmates from architecture school—talented individuals whom she knew to be intelligent, creative, and attentive—lacked confidence on the job site. The same was often true when discussing risk and performance with their colleagues. Even when they knew the right approach, they had trouble articulating it, especially when met with opposition from contractors or clients.

With all the demands of professional practice, it can be difficult for architects and architects-in-training to acquire a technical foundation in building science. Imagine discussing how a detail or an assembly works and being able to do it with that confidence that only comes from real understanding—whether you’re at the drafting table with your colleagues, in a conference room with your clients, or on the job site with your contractor.

Please join us to learn about how Williamson will help you do exactly that with her Building Science Fight Club.

Christine Williamson, Assoc. AIA, Building Science Consultant, BSFC

Christine Williamson has spent her career in building science forensics, discovering why buildings fail, and working with owners, architects, and builders to remedy the problems. Her new construction consulting helps architects use building science not only to mitigate risk of failure, but also to help them make their projects as energy efficient as they are beautiful. She is the founder of the Instagram account @BuildingScienceFightClub, an educational project that teaches architects about building science and construction. She graduated from Princeton University and studied at Boston Architectural College before completing her Master’s of Architecture at New School of Architecture + Design. She is a member and past chair of ASHRAE Technical Committee 1.12, Moisture Management in Buildings.
