CSI Learning and Libations: Building Air Leakage and Effects on the Building Envelope



TRC002: Building Air Leakage and Effects on the Building Envelope

This presentation is for architects and other design professionals interested in increasing their knowledge of the application and use of air barriers in the building envelopes of commercial and multi-family residential buildings. Researchers, architects and code writers have shown that attention to specific details in both new and retrofitted envelopes result in better performing buildings with better comfort and long durability as well as lower energy consumption.

 Learning objectives:

  • Review the definition of a High-Performance Building and the importance of Air and Moisture Management to Occupants
  • Understand the connection of the Building Envelope has for a facilities Durability, Sustainability, Energy Efficiency, Occupancy Comfort/ Health and IAQ.
  • Discuss the application differences of Air Barrier product types during new construction / major fašade retrofit in comparison to remediation of an existing fašade.
  • Understand what causes Building Air Leakage in the existing construction and how to remediate those circumstances.
