    What It's About

    When it comes to high performance home design and construction, the principles of building science remain constant, while their application is determined by a project’s location. This course explains building science principles and demonstrates how to cost-effectively apply them to home building practices and construction techniques to increase the efficiency, performance, comfort and durability of a home in each climate zone.

    As a graduate of this course, participants will be able to:

    • Examine how building envelopes can be optimized for each climate zone to maximize home performance in remodeling projects.
    • Review the benefits of systems based design and construction and how to properly implement these practices in a building project.
    • Apply building science principles to building projects to maximize home performance and comfort.
    • Identify the best climate zone-specific building practices based on building science and systems based design principles.

    This course qualifies for:

    • 6.0 CE for AIBD
    • 6 LUs for AIA
    • 6 CE for all NAHB Designations except HCCP
    All registrants for this class at IBS will get access to the ICC-700 2020 National Green Building Standard through BuilderBooks.com.
