Don’t Go There: Navigating the Real, Imperfect Air Barrier Details
December 3 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Solving air barrier details or mishaps during construction is possible, but do we really have time for that? Construction schedules and sequencing are compressed. Change orders and rework are expensive and time consuming. Discover through actual air barrier specifications, drawings, and field photographs the possible options to solve details or mishaps BEFORE construction starts. Join this interactive seminar with polls and real examples during construction that delve into ways to avoid those last-minute detail changes.
- Identify the top five (5) air barrier issues in construction.
- Analyze actual air barrier details and mishaps for possible solutions.
- Formulate possible air barrier solutions in both design and construction phases.
- Coordinate air barrier product data, specifications, drawings, and construction to minimize problems and change orders.
