  • BCIT High Performance Building Lab 3700 Willingdon Avenue Burnaby, BC, V5G 3H2 Canada (map)

Meet the City of Vancouver's airtightness standards with this hands-on workshop held in the new BCIT High Performance Building Lab. This workshop covers air-tightness from top to bottom in a day. Starting with a short discussion on what an air barrier is, and how to define it on your project,  the workshop quickly becomes a hands-on workshop that details how an air barrier is made, how it fits at a ceiling junction, how it connects to the foundation or slab, how it works around balconies, decks, and overhangs,  and how it connects to plumbing, sprinklers and vents.

This workshop was developed for the City Of Vancouver by the air-tightness experts at RDH Building Sciences, Red Door Energy and Small Planet Supply. Attendees will work with a wide range of air-sealing materials and get a deep understanding of available materials, and how they perform. 

Space is limited. Seats sell out quickly.
