WAV-T

This course explores the effects that Water, Air, Vapor, and Thermal bridging have on the building envelope so that you will leave with the right tools to start implementing WAV-T strategies.

Description: 

The building envelope contains the secrets to obtaining net-zero, LEED certification, or sustainability, and to meeting your energy models. In this course, we'll explore the effects of Water, Air, Vapor, and Thermal bridging on the building envelope.

At this highly interactive session, you'll also learn how to:

• Recognize areas of concern within your building envelope that require your attention.

• Implement potential strategies for a successful WAV-T compliant building envelope.

• Identify the various materials that address water, air, vapor, and thermal conductivity within exterior building envelopes.

You'll leave the course with the right tools to start integrating WAV-T strategies into your projects immediately.
