Online CE Webinar – Building Envelope Science Fundamentals & Key Concepts (PACE)
Thu April 9, 2020 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
PACEBE012015 | Building Envelope Science Fundamentals & Key Concepts (PACE)
1.0 HSW – Register for Zoom CE Webinar, required.
The Building Envelope is the system or assembly of components that provides environmental separation between the conditioned space and the exterior environment. This course will provide attendees with a general overview of building envelope science, impacts, functions, and evolution. How building envelope systems and materials have changed and their impact on performance and resiliency will be reviewed.
The definition, code requirements and key concepts for the four primary control layers (e.g., water, air, thermal & vapor) will be explained in detail. Assembly solutions & best practices for achieving high performance and resilient wall systems will also be reviewed.
After attending this session attendees should be able to:
• Identify and understand primary building envelope systems and functions
• Understand how building envelope systems have changed
• Understand current code requirements for building envelopes
• Implement current best practices for high performance & resilient building envelopes in their current projects
