TRACK: Building Techniques & Strategies

It’s time to level up with high performance. This Master Workshop will show builders how to use high performance design and construction strategies to avoid callbacks and warranty claims associated with energy efficiency, moisture management, air sealing, ventilation, and crawl spaces and basements. Join our panel of top-notch industry experts as they examine the building science behind correctly closing in crawl spaces, water-related failures, implementing energy efficient best practices versus code, and designing proper fresh air and ventilation systems. Understanding how a house can operate as a system empowers builders to work effectively with the trades to implement high performance solutions in their next home.

  • Gain insight into common-sense air sealing processes and proper ventilation strategies, and learn tips for efficient installations that meet or exceed code.
  • Learn how to make small adjustments to common existing details that can lead to significant improvements in energy efficiency, comfort and durability.
  • Attain the critical balance between cost-effectiveness, structural integrity and energy efficiency in home design and construction.
  • Examine how the building's flow of energy, air and moisture affects the crawl space, and why effectively controlling these will mitigate homeowner complaints and liability.
