This session will prepare staff for in-field conditions and the level of detail necessary to construct Passive House buildings. During the construction of a high-performance project it is critical that the design intent is accurately implemented to achieve the desired efficiency and durability. The application of building envelope air barrier, insulation, and windows will be demonstrated through a series of mock-ups. The trainer will demonstrate both good and bad installations and show how to identify and diagnose problem locations. Come prepared with scenarios in mind to share from your projects as well.

Objectives:

  • Application of air barrier materials at rough openings and field of wall
  • Installation of windows and different air sealing strategies
  • Approach to sealing penetrations through the building envelope
  • Performance testing, results, and strategies to improve assembly performance
