Course Details

This course provides a practical introduction and application of building science fundamentals for the evaluation, design, and construction of durable and energy efficient buildings. The role of climate and the theory of heat flow, vapour flow, air flow, and the application of each principle to the evaluation of building envelope assemblies will be discussed. Best-practice assembly design and detailing fundamentals for above and below grade wall assemblies, roofs, and windows will be covered with examples and case studies.
