Description

Building Envelopes: What could possibly go wrong?

Failure of building envelopes can vary from heat loss, air and water leakage to structural deterioration and mould growth in buildings. Design and installation of a building envelope suitable for our environment is critical to the life of a building. But how do you know if it is working? We will discuss general building envelope principles that can be used in design, review some of the building envelope issues we have encountered, and show building envelope testing/commissioning work that can be completed to determine if your system works.
