ABAA Contractor Webinar: The Air Barrier Pre-Installation Meeting
January 28, 2022 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
The air barrier is chosen and specified, and the installer has submitted their shop drawings and submittals. Now the contractor must install the product on your specific building. Ensuring that the system specified is reviewed thoroughly, shop drawings and submittals are correctly submitted and completely, and all the project-specific details are understood is the next big task for a successful air barrier installation.
We will go over what makes a good pre-installation meeting necessary, informative, and has the ability to verify understanding among all players and adjacent transitions. Using job site photos and drawings to present the information.
1. Understand what to include in an air barrier submittal and pre-installation meeting.
2. Identify and understand the systems to be used and how they will be integrated into the project-specific details with other building products.
3. Learn how to prevent constructability/compatibility issues before construction.
4. Create an action plan for installation for the team to follow.
