CSI Tech Talk Tuesday: A Risk Management Strategy for Air Barrier Installation – The ABAA QAP

January 9 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

Can you see air leaks and see water leaks in your new building right away? Do you want your project finished only to then find out that you have installation deficiencies? Do you want project delays for rework due to faulty installation? We didn’t think so either and we’re here to help! When you specify the ABAA QAP program, you receive a risk management program that address the potential issues during the installation process. The installation is performed by individuals and companies that are educated and have the experience to properly install air barriers. But it does not stop there! The Site Quality Assurance Program addresses a wide range of items which can impact the installation. Find out more about the program, the costs, benefits and how to successfully execute your air barrier installation.

Session Takeaways

  • Determine the impacts of air leakage that can be quantified.
  • Assess potential impacts to cost, scheduling, building performance and durability by poor installation of air barriers.
  • Define key components of an air barrier site quality assurance program and assess the importance of each component and how they interrelate.
  • Describe language required in a specification that provides key criteria in regards to implementing an air barrier site quality assurance program to reduce liability and risk.
