Moisture-Control Fundamentals

The threat of the damaging effects of moisture in building enclosures can be compounded if all the materials in the wall assembly are not compatible. This course equips today’s building professional with the knowledge to choose the right materials to control enclosure moisture.

Thermal-Control Fundamentals

Thermal control is critical in achieving optimal energy-efficiency and avoiding condensation in the building enclosure. This course focuses on the modern building science principles needed to build for today’s environment and occupant demands.

Air-Control Fundamentals

Controlling air infiltration and exfiltration is paramount in achieving energy-efficient buildings. This course examines what is required to achieve air tightness in buildings and outlines how to detail air barrier systems.

Exterior Air-Barrier Systems

Environmental elements like extreme temperatures, UV rays and wind-driven rain must always be considered when selecting exterior building materials. This presentation will help you understand changing codes and standards, why air tightness is important for commercial buildings, and how to detail exterior air barrier systems.

Exterior Continuous Insulation

R-values are becoming a thing of the past when it comes to modern, high performance commercial buildings. For most buildings, continuous exterior insulation will be the new normal. This presentation will help you understand thermal control fundamentals, changing codes and standards, and how to detail enclosures with continuous exterior insulation.
