Surrey: HAVAN Airtightness Training (Windows, Doors & Curtain Walls)

January 29, 2020 @ 4:00 pm to January 30, 2020 @ 1:00 am

In partnership with FortisBC’s BUILT BETTER program, HAVAN and CHBA Fraser Valley are presenting the third full-day session of a four-part series, A Holistic Approach to Improving Air Tightness on Wednesday, January 29 at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel in Surrey. Led by Hamid Heidarali of Hamid Design Build, these highly interactive and hands-on workshops are designed to bring together builders and their teams (site staff, designers, trades, consultants).  Team learning is the key to building better homes.

The third air tightness session will focus on windows, curtain walls and doors.  Hamid will take an in-depth exploration of air tightness in Part 9 buildings, supported by 40 mobile building envelope assemblies and various applicable case studies.

This seminar series features:

  • A holistic perspective towards the overall satisfactory performance of the building envelope as far as air tightness is concerned.
  • Various methods of improving air tightness in wood-framed buildings.
  • Air barrier selection process with the focus on improving thermal comfort, energy efficiency, moisture management, long-term performance, adaptability to future repair and renovation.
  • Effective air barrier detailing at the intersection between various building envelope assemblies as well as around penetrations

Seating is limited as teams are invited to the event, so reserve your seats today.

8 CPD credits.
