Presentation Summary: 

This course presents a unique approach to designing an air barrier system, exploring how it ties into the other components of the exterior wall cladding and why a holistic approach should be considered when designing a building, ensuring the continuity and compatibility of the air barrier system and thus avoiding the pitfalls of piecemealing the control layers of the building envelope.

There are many options when it comes to choosing an air barrier system, but they are often presented on their own as if an exterior building envelope is only composed of an air barrier system. Why should air barrier systems be set aside and treated on their own instead of as an integral part of an engineered system? In today’s market, where the trend is to combine multiple aesthetics on a given building, it is crucial to achieve continuity and compatibility of the air barrier system, to integrate it to the entire building envelope and design a constructible exterior wall system.

Online ticket sales close September 8th at 11:59pm.
