Understanding Difficult Critical Transitions of Air, Vapor and Moisture Barriers
May 18, 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EDT
This presentation will identify the many difficult critical transitions on complex building types and will give the tools to better understand the reasoning and sequencing needed to complete the installation in order to prevent constructability issues and potential rework in the field through drawing detailing and correlating construction photos of actual installations and explanations of each conditions.
- Identify locations of difficult critical transitions regarding the installation of the air, vapor, and moisture barrier through construction drawings and correlating photos of correct and incorrect installations.
- Confidently review drawings and in-place work through an understanding of the detailing needed to be located on the drawings and in the field.
- Learn how to prevent constructability issues during design development and create an action plan for each condition for construction regarding the installation of the air, vapor, and moisture barriers.
- Apply the understanding of the installation of the air, vapor, and moisture barriers concerns to the field during the site observation review.

Corey is a registered Architect in several states, practicing for more than 30 years. He specializes in building envelope, restoration, preservation, life safety, and interior finishes. Corey is currently the Director of Quality Assurance for Pepper Construction Company in Chicago, where he has promoted a formal quality program for more than seven years and works on 50-75 projects a year, conducting constructability reviews, pre-installation meetings, comprehensive envelope meetings, and construction observations, in addition to providing educational opportunities throughout the industry. Corey has produced more than 150 “lessons learned” papers about building envelope and life safety concerns to proactively address issues during design review, pre-construction, and construction. He maintains an extensive database of quality metrics gathered on more than 1,000 buildings and $3 billion worth of work and developed a quality app for mobile devices which houses the lessons learned papers and allows for easy access and construction verification in the field.
