Continuing Education

Learning Objectives - After this course, you should be able to:

  1. %IThe participant will be able to define what a Building Envelope is and how it contributes to sound design and good building practices
  2. %IEvaluate Moisture Management strategies when specifying fiberglass mat gypsum panels
  3. %ICompare and evaluate the various construction delivery methods, and the concept of Critical Path Sequencing
  4. %IIdentify and define the ways that Fiberglass mat gypsum technology helps address potential moisture and mold issues in various building envelope scenarios


Discussing the basic principles of good envelope design, this webinar will review current state-of-practice in building envelope technologies and systems. It will then explore how fiberglass mat gypsum technology can help architects design envelope assemblies that minimize construction sequencing problems and improve overall performance at the same time.
