Specifying "complete wall systems" helps designers reach design decisions faster. Working with manufactures that provide "complete systems" better insures meeting codes for fire resistance, and air and water leakage, improving fuctions adn sustainability. This course reviews "complete wall" concepts including efficiency and risk management value provided by "systemization", IBC wall systems classifications and their impact on height and area calculations, NFPA 285 compliance, construction detainling, and "complete wall" specification practices.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Understand the value of specifying "complete wall system" attributes versus infividual components/materials.
  2. Understand how each component fuctions and contributes to "complete wall systems" energy efficiency and weatherproofing.
  3. Understand the codes and standards that goven "complete wall system" selection and that mandate compnent and system performance.
  4. Understand specification practices to achieve "complete wall systems" performance.
