ABAA – Air Barrier Transitions and Continuity

May 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

ABAA – Air Barrier Transitions and Continuity
2-Part Education Event combined 3.0 LU/HSW
May 23rd 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Paric – 77 W Port Plaza Dr Suite 250, St. Louis, MO 63146

Registration Fee: $25 (online only)

Part 1
“By Others” – The Elusive Sub-Contractor Responsible for Transitions 
1.5 LU/HSW

An in-depth look at the environmental separators for the roof, wall, and below-grade assemblies in regard to water control, air leakage control, thermal performance, and vapor control.  Critical details that typically cause building performance-related issues will be focused on the two largest failures of building enclosures: roof-to-wall connections and wall-to-window connections specific to curtain wall systems. A step-by-step look at each critical detail in regard to the sequence of construction and the various connections to ensure airtight/watertight and thermally protected details. Real-life photos and job conditions will bring the realities of the construction process to show typical errors found and how they can be addressed correctly.

Learning Objectives:

  • Articulate how transitions impact building enclosure performance through reallife experiences in regard to energy loss, building performance and the sustainability of the system
  • Correctly identify and prioritize critical details during the construction document phase to ensure an integrated approach is taken to heat, air, water and vapor control
  • Assess each detail in regards to impacts of the 4 control layers and understand the various options for designing details for a variety of roof, wall and window assemblies
  • Using real-life case studies and photos, plan out the proper sequence of construction and identify quality control methods in construction document review to provide corrective action
  • Describe how quality management systems can be applied to the construction process and how quality assurance differentiates with quality control.

Part 2
Failure is Not an Option: Air Barrier Continuity Strategies for Storefront and Curtain Wall Systems
1.5 LU/HSW

Critical details that typically cause building performance related issues will be focused on one of the largest failures of building enclosures: wall to window connections specific to curtain wall systems and storefronts. A step-by-step look at each critical detail in regards to sequence of construction and the various connections to ensure airtight/watertight and thermally protected details. Real life photos and job conditions will highlight the realities of the construction process to show typical errors found and how those errors can be addressed correctly.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assess how site quality assurance audits, field observation and site quality control fit into an overall quality assurance and risk management strategy.
  • Determine responsibilities of all building enclosure stakeholders to coordinate and execute a plan for quality installation.
  • Identify typical issues found in the installation process and what caused these for a variety of air barrier systems by visual inspection.
  • Through the use of jobsite photos, demonstrate the physical testing that can be done on a variety of air barrier systems.
