200: Building Enclosures for High Performance Buildings


TBD Edmonton AB
Friday, March 16, 2018 - 5:00am to 5:00pm


Graham Finch, RDH


Thermally efficient, airtight and durable building enclosure designs have evolved in recent years from conventional North American practices with the introduction of many new materials to the local market.

This full-day course provides in-depth information about high-performance building enclosures for North American buildings, including single-family homes and large commercial buildings, with a focus on walls, roofs and window systems. Case studies demonstrate how innovative building enclosures have been integrated into projects. Experience working with building enclosures is a prerequisite, but the 120-series Passive House Canada courses are not required for this course.
