CONTROLLING AIR LEAKAGE AND MOISTURE MOVEMENT: AIR BARRIER DETAILING
The one (1) hour course is an overview of the specific techniques for installing the different types of air barrier materials. Air barriers are required by code in most states. And while most architects understand the whys, they are not clear on the installation details. This important layer of the building envelope requires careful detailing and installation. Some firms are even requiring meetings with installation contractors to be sure details are correctly executed. This course covers tricky details, including rough openings, roof-to-walls, and joints between different building materials. This program is registered with the AIA/CES for continuing professional education, and is HSW-approved. The course earns one learning unit (LU).
This event is presented free of charge and in a live virtual format using the GoToMeeting platform. The link will be provided via email upon the completion of the registration process, so please check your email inbox for the confirmation notice with link.
If you would like the AIA learning unit, please be sure to enter your AIA member number on the registration form. Unfortunately, learning units are not available from other organizations at this time.
