Description: The Building Envelope Sciences Group of Gorman Richardson Lewis Architects, Inc. (GRLA) will present lessons learned in designing and specifying the building envelope, with emphasis on bulk water management, water vapor mitigation, and thermal performance. Lessons learned will be from actual projects and will include discussion of how administrative and technical requirements can impact each other.
Course Directory: Building Science, 1 CEU
Topic Area: Building Envelope
Learning Objectives: Participants will learn:
- Basic types of wall systems and functionality relative to design intent for bulk water and watervapor management.
- Concepts for developing the administrative requirements for mitigating building envelope failures.
- Concepts for developing the technical requirements for mitigating building envelope failures.
- Concepts for use in coordinating the administrative with the technical requirements.
