Zero energy building enclosures: assemblies lab for residential buildings

November 28, 2021 @ 4:30 pm to November 29, 2021 @ 1:00 am

BCIT’s CESA 1121 course offered in Burnaby.


This lab course will allow students to practice construction of various high performance assembly details to meet the requirements of the Upper Steps of the BC Energy Step Code and the Passive House standard. Students have already developed a foundational understanding of high performance assemblies through pre-requisite courses. With eight hours in the BCIT High Performance Lab, students will work through a number of hands-on lab assemblies to build, test, or evaluate various assemblies using a range of approaches and materials. Lab activities will cover various approaches and details for foundations, above and below grade walls, roofs, interfaces, windows, balconies, penetrations, and more. An introduction to working with low-embodied carbon insulation materials will be provided. Builders, tradespeople, insulators, designers, building officials, and energy advisors would benefit from this course.

A companion course to the November 27 course on building enclosures and airtightness.
