On the road! Reaching Future Performance Targets Using Fundamental Enclosure Concepts

Does the mindset for residential construction today correlate with the performance targets of tomorrow … simply put … No! High performance residential buildings need to be highly durable, but what type of enclosure assemblies will meet future energy demand requirements? What are the renewable details associated with typical 15-20-year building enclosure assets (e.g., deck/balcony membranes and sloped roof systems)? How can you gain experience with new high-performance building performance methods before taking on your next project?

This training is designed for both new and seasoned Part 9 Residential builders in any British Columbia climate zone who want to:

  • Gain hands-on experience with high-performance air and water barrier membrane installation detailing known to improve efficiency, increase durability, and reduce installation costs
  • Build the fundamental knowledge required to be successful in evaluating and implementing high-performance enclosure design demanded by current and future code requirements
  • Learn cutting edge renewable detailing approaches that can be implemented on even today’s projects
