November 13th and 14th, 2024

This two-day workshop allows participants an opportunity to learn and experience the building science physics of air, heat and moisture flow that every designer and builder should know so they can make informed decisions for designs, material choices, methods and details that perform well in each specific climate zone. The course will address critical home performance elements that exist as a system and are part of high performance, energy efficient, sustainable homes.

Participants will learn about building enclosure elements and the impact they have on heating, ventilation and air conditioning design and performance to ensure buildings are safer, healthier, more comfortable, more durable as well as energy efficient.

The workshop provides hands-on learning opportunities in a demonstration and experience center to identify cost effective techniques and strategies for designers and builders of single family and multi-family new homes and renovations.
