SIGA Airtightness Workshop – Strategies in High-Performance Building Envelopes Workshop

April 27, 2023
8am-12pm EST

SIGA High-Performance Construction Academy, 232 N Broadway 2nd Floor Salem, NH 03079

In residential and commercial buildings, a well-designed and executed, high-performance, continuously sealed envelope contributes to low energy consumption and reduces CO2 emissions. It increases occupant comfort and the building’s long-term durability. The airtightness workshop is a fresh look at the features of 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 these 4-hour, interactive course participants will learn:

  • Building science fundamentals and the environmental impacts that affect building performance
  • Building envelope key components & terms
  • The importance of a continuous weather & airtightness layer(s)
  • Strategies to avoid risk from design to implementation
