Advanced Building Envelope Solutions 

A high-performance building envelope is integral to increasing the sustainability of commercial and residential structures—both new construction and retrofit. The results of decades of R&D are now in the marketplace for you to use to enhance energy efficiency, durability and speed of construction while lowering the overall cost of ownership and lessening environmental impact of your project. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Define the role of the building enclosure in sustainable construction and retrofits
  • Evaluate next-generation insulation materials, air/weather barrier systems, roofing systems, fenestration enhancements, complete wall systems and sustainable concrete formulations
  • Determine how to lower the overall cost of ownership and lessen environmental impact of your project
  • Identify emerging technologies, such as organic photovoltaics, phase-change wall board and nanotechnology insulation material
