Building Sciences - Understanding the building envelope and how it relates to existing operations and maintenance.

Our October Sustainability Meeting will feature guest speaker Dany Romero P.E. from NOVA

Topic:  The presentation provides a brief summary of the definition and performance objectives of the Building Envelope. We give examples of typical issues that arise during new construction and how addressing them during the design phase can lead to significant savings. Case studies during forensic investigations will show common maintenance issues to look out for in existing buildings that can affect building performance and efficiency. The course is AIA approved so if any Architects are planning on attending, please let us know so we can provide you with a 1 hour continuing education certificate.
