Fall Session Topics:
- Ventilate it Right - Heat Recovery Ventilation planning and economics for multi-family buildings.
- Build it Tight - Building envelope design and application using European tapes and membranes.
"Built it Tight" - SIGA
In multi-family buildings, a well-designed and executed high-performance and continuously-sealed envelope contributes to low energy consumption and reduced CO2 emissions. It increases both occupant comfort, and most importantly, the building's long-term durability. "Air Tightness & Moisture Management - Strategies in High Performance Building Envelopes" is a fresh look at the features of a resilient and efficient envelope design that examines the key layers that comprise the fabric of the building, and how a well-planned weather, air, and vapor sealing strategy avoids risk and saves money.
Participants will be engaged in a discussion and a hands-on envelope-detailing workshop. During this hour-long, interactive course, participants will learn:
- Building science fundamentals and the environmental impacts that affect building performance
- Building envelope key components and terms
- The importance of a continuous weather & air tightness layer(s)
- Strategies to avoid risk, from design to implementation
- Where SIGA has been used locally and regionally to successfully achieve a high performance building envelope.
"Ventilate it Right" - Zehnder ComfoSystems
HIgh performance multi-family ventilation systems can be both centralized or decentralized systems. Join an open discussion on state-of-the-art 90% efficient ventilation systems, and what design choices are cost-effective in ventilating big buildings. New emerging solutions are presented by Zehnder America, covering design and installation. This free course will provide participants with a background in Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) technology, and how to ventilate big residential buildings.
