This course outlines the dangers posed by Mother Nature and how science, codes, testing and methods have been developed to a platform upon which to build and combat these forces. We will also address how proper incorporation of martials including continuous insulation and air and weather-barrier systems will improve indoor air quality and contribute to environmental sustainability.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Learn About the Science Behind Thermal, Air, Vapor and Water Control for Steel Stud Construction
  2. Provide an Understanding of Rainscreen Systems and how they can Enhance Building Design; improving Building Performance and Longevity, while improving the Indoor Environment and contribute to Environmental Sustainability
  3. Discover How POLYISO and ACM/MCM can work together Meeting Requirements and Outperform Traditional Methods in High Wind conditions and meet NFPA-285 Wall Assembly requirements
  4. Interpret the Code Requirements for Building Envelope Design and Performance
  5. Examine How to Develop and Test a Solution for the Issues Presented
