BUILT BETTER Session 1: Airtightness for Roofs and Decks in Part 9 Homes

September 24, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

FortisBC has launched a new program — BUILT BETTER — to provide the homebuilding industry with resources to build better performing homes.

As part of this new initiative, FortisBC, in partnership with HAVAN, CHBA BC, and CHBA Fraser Valley, is delivering a four-part workshop series: A Holistic Approach to Improving Air Tightness.  Each of the four workshops is designed to be highly interactive and hands-on.

September 24 will be the first session with a focus on roofs and decks.  Building Envelope Consultant, Hamid Heidarali of Hamid Design Build, will take an in-depth, hands on exploration of air tightness in Part 9 buildings, supported by 40 mobile building envelope assemblies and various applicable case studies.

Seating is limited as attendees are encouraged to bring their teams to the event, so reserve your seats today.

Stay tuned for more information coming soon about sessions two to four.
