Live webinar sponsored by the Air Barrier Association of America


The Integrated Building Envelope

Presented by David Leslie, RWC


This course provide s an overview of the Integrated Building Envelope achieved t hrough the understanding of Design, Material, and Installation in order to create Continuity in both the process and the building. This course is designed to delve into the history and evolution of sheet-applied air barriers; from the dominant air barrier membrane, to the forgotten option, and now the reemerging high-performance system today. We will discuss new technologies in both sheet and fluid air barrier components that allow them to work seamlessly together as a system.



Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the origins of sheet-applied air barriers.
  2. Identify causes for how sheet-applied air barriers fell out of favor.
  3. How technology has brought about an evolutionary change of sheet-applied air barriers.
  4. Understand how to make sheet-applied air barriers part of an Integrated Building Envelope.
