Event Description

Please join the Building America Program for our free webinar: High Performance Enclosure Strategies: Part II, New Construction on Wednesday, August 13th at 3pm ET/1pm MT/12pm PT. The webinar will focus on strategies for designing and building high performance building enclosures. Webinar presenters will discuss effective strategies to address moisture and thermal needs of high performance building envelopes.

To register please go here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5343779702905433089. Log-in details will be provided upon registration.

Presenters and specific topics for this webinar will be:

  • Peter Baker, Building Science Corporation, presenting Cladding Attachment Over Thick Exterior Insulating Sheathing.  The presentation will discuss results of three years of laboratory and field exposure testing that examined the mechanics involved in the development of the system deflection resistance capacity and long term movement of assemblies in exposed outdoor environments.  The results of which have been used to help validate and develop system attachment guidelines for various cladding assemblies.

     

  • Vladimir Kochkin, Home Innovations Laboratory, presenting NextGen Advanced Framing. Vladimir will focus on new opportunities for advanced framing practices – specifically three significant additions to advanced framing will be discussed: (1) Continuous drywall at interior partitions, (2) Rim header, and (3) High heel truss attachment. Each of the new approaches have been engineered and tested by the Home Innovation Research Labs with the goals of (a) improving thermal performance of the building enclosure, (b) reducing the cost of energy efficient construction, and (c) simplifying the construction process, all while accommodating higher levels of insulation. The presentation will include lessons-learnt from field applications.    

     

  • Lois Arena, Steven Winter Associates, presenting In-Field Hygrothermal Performance of High R-Value Walls in Climate Zones 5. Lois’s presentation will discuss the challenge of moisture problems within the building shell that can be caused by a number of factors including excess interior moisture, bulk water intrusion, capillary action from concrete to wood connections and through wetted building materials such as siding wetted from rain splash back. Results of WUFI modeling and actual data collected from monitored High-R wall assembles will be presented, along with recommendations for best practices.
