Design Principles for Rainscreen Wall Systems

August 15 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

The topic will discuss thorough understanding of the various components that lead to failure in Building Enclosures and how to prevent it with Rainscreen system solutions. The importance of structural/Hygrothermal design of wall systems and air barriers, vapor and thermal control in the walls will be presented. Owner/user benefits in using material manufacturer’s in design phase and how that leads to a FULL Building Envelope Hygrothermal Warranty from the manufacturer will be discussed. Finally, we will discuss innovative ways to simplify the design, construction, commissioning and handover of the facility while maintaining the performance requirement(s) of the building design.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Think of an enclosure as a system/assembly not individual component. Each has to be designed to work together for the overall Enclosure.
  2. Detailing and inspection of AWB is most critical and should be the responsibility of the AWB manufacturer. The Assembly Manufacturer/supplier should provide overall Assembly Warranty for the whole Building Enclosure.
  3. Discuss Non Proprietary Specifications, Detailing, and bid documents and working in tandem with GC.
  4. Learn innovative ways to simplify the design, construction, commissioning and handover of the facility while maintaining the performance requirement(s) of the building design.
