2015 Building Envelope Forum: Integration Drives Evolution

This full-day forum will focus on the current state of building envelope design, where the field is headed, and the consequences of existing regulations, codes, policies, and practices in building design. The program will include diverse perspectives on the creation and implementation of high-performance building enclosures and highlight opportunities for new approaches and innovation in future delivery methods.

Learning Objectives

  • Be able to compare, contrast, and discuss several case studies of wall assemblies from built Passive House projects in Seattle and Portland, which apply different methods of managing heat, air, and moisture to achieve superior energy performance, durability, and occupant comfort.
  • Be able to identify several net zero energy project examples on the West Coast and illustrate the envelope systems, technologies, design concepts, and delivery methods used to achieve net zero.
  • Be able to utilize net zero energy strategies that have made the transition to standard practice; recognize barriers to achieving net zero; and identify important decision points during the design process.
  • Be able to define the building envelope commissioning (BECx) process, particularly as it relates to applicable standards and processes involved with delivering better performing enclosures through third party verification.
  • Be able to identify new legislation that other states have adopted to mandate building envelope commissioning and to evaluate the potential impacts that similar legislation would have in this region.
