“Building enclosure failures are the most common cause of missed energy targets, durability issues, and health and comfort problems. Making multilayered, high-performance structures and building envelopes function as they should requires a new way of thinking that has not yet become second nature in the industry.” John Straube, Ph.D., P.Eng.

These seminars will provide up-to-date building science information about
material selection and how to apply building science principles to construct resilient, durable, energy efficient and healthy buildings.
