Instructor:  Roger Peck

Building homes that are well protected from the weather should be a priority for any building professional.  The majority of problems stem from improper procedures and workmanship, but often the problem is found in the design of a home.  Explore factors that contribute to exterior shell failure and identify practical solutions that will preserve the integrity of the building envelope.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Identify the components of the building as a system, its performance requirements, and how these features must be integrated to prevent building envelope failure.
  • Describe how a properly constructed building envelope will keep out weather related moisture and stop uncontrolled movement of energy due to loss of conditioned air.
  • Outline at least one design strategy based on “best practices” for the construction of buildings in areas with relatively high humidity.
  • Summarize the options available to the consumer that may have been injured by or suffered a financial loss by construction defects and the resultant failure of the building envelope.

  • Building Exterior Shell
  • Building Envelope System
  • Foundation Construction
  • Wall Construction
