New Developments in Building Enclosure Design
All buildings require a building enclosure, but how much time is spent sweating over the 1:2 details that can make or break a building’s performance? A more rigorous understanding of building enclosure control layers and some new developments in the building science industry service offerings can assist architects in designing comprehensive and durable enclosures. This seminar will outline new developments in building enclosure design driven by the transition to a lower carbon construction process, increased energy performance, and code and standard changes.
