Managing Condensation – Water Intrusion & Energy in the Real World
Date(s) - 10/10/2017
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Desert Pines Golf Club
Window-opening air and water leakage has been a difficult problem for the construction industry. This discussion evaluates building failures, conventional construction approaches, and new developments in waterproofing techniques to show a path forward for designers seeking higher-performing wall assemblies. The presentation concludes with illustrations of how quick change test chambers can be used to conduct pre-construction design verification testing. This allows full scale mock ups to be tested, refined and then re-tested until sustainable performance is achieved.
Presentation is AIA approved and gives 1 CEU.
- Explain why job site conditions should drive construction
