Airtight, Done Right: Simple and Efficient Strategies
December 17, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Home Building Crossroads provides residential home construction professionals a chance to discuss challenges and hear solutions from today’s leading experts, as well as network with other professionals from their region. The educational webinar series, featuring Christine Williamson of Building Science Fight Club, focuses on different regions and climate zones to provide single-family residential building knowledge.
Airtight, Done Right will present small design adjustments — using standard materials already included in the project — that architects and builders can make immediately, at low (or no) additional cost, to disproportionately improve air-tightness and energy efficiency in residential design. We will also cover what these adjustments look like in the field and equip participants to respond to the most common objections to these design changes during the construction phase, especially those related to constructability and cost.
Designed for builders, contractors, code officials, HERS raters, architects, and channel partners, this event will offer one and half (1.5) health, safety, and wellness (HSW) CE learning unit
