Course Details

This course is intended to provide a practical approach to the application of building enclosure detailing through hands-on construction and instruction. The course is suitable for contractors, home builders, architects, engineers, technologists, handymen and those interested in building construction. Building on the theory and fundamentals from BLDC 3050, students gain hands on experience in the construction of wall and roof assemblies and details at windows, balconies, decks, roofs, penetrations and interfaces. Alternate detailing approaches for air barrier systems, insulation methods, vapour barriers and cladding attachment will be covered using best practice approaches. Physical testing of materials such as sealants, membranes, as well as the rain water penetration resistance testing of window assemblies and installations will also be integrated into the class.
