Building Enclosure Excellence and How to Achieve it

This Live Event happened on September 18, 2019 (7:00PM - 7:00PM EST)

A panel of experts will present and discuss design and construction solutions to common building envelope conditions in multifamily and commercial buildings. They will address the considerable challenges faced by architects as they strive to translate building enclosure design concepts into realities that are energy efficient, durable, trouble free, and cost effective.

This program is the second half of a two-part series that will examine the critical role of enclosures in relation to building performance. By focusing on topics within technology and building science, the speakers will present examples and experiences that touch on the concepts of design vs constructibility; correct application of materials and products; air tightness; and thermal bridging solutions.
