Building Enclosure Design: Fundamentals, Components and Assemblies
Credits: 1 HSW, 1 LU
Sponsored By: Woodworks
Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science
Building enclosures are responsible for controlling heat flow, air flow, vapor flow and a number of other elements. Through a combination of building science fundamentals and current research, this presentation will explore design considerations associated with wood-frame building enclosures and the role of control layers. Discussion will focus on best practices for designing durable, energy-efficient enclosures using traditional light wood-frame construction.
