Reaching Future Performance Targets Using Fundamental Enclosure Concepts

October 19, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT

Does the mindset for residential construction today correlate with the performance targets of tomorrow … simply put … No! High-performance residential buildings need to be highly durable, but what type of enclosure assemblies will meet future energy demand requirements? What are the renewable details associated with typical 15-20-year building enclosure assets (e.g., deck/balcony membranes and sloped roof systems)? How can you gain experience with new high-performance building performance details before taking them on during your next project?

Join Canadian Home Builders’ Association and RDH Building Science to answer these questions and more during this hands-on Part 9 residential builder training event. This training is designed for both new and seasoned Part 9 Residential builders in any British Columbia climate zone who want to:

  • Gain hands-on experience with high-performance air and water barrier membrane installation detailing known to improve efficiency, increase durability, and reduce installation costs
  • Build the fundamental knowledge required to be successful in evaluating and implementing high-performance enclosure design demanded by current and future code requirements
  • Learn cutting-edge renewable detailing approaches that can be implemented on even today’s projects

This hands-on training uses tabletop mock-ups, 3D graphics, and an open, interactive dialogue led by building enclosure professionals.

Spots are limited for hands-on engagement. All tools and materials required for hands-on training will be provided.

Thanks to support from Columbia Basin Trust, BC Hydro and FortisBC, a $200 subsidy is offered for participants from the Regional Districts of Kootenay Boundary, Central Kootenay, and East Kootenay, and those joining from the Columbia Basin Trust Region.
