Building Wall Design & Construction

Combining the art of building design, the craft of building construction, the science of building performance, the rigor of consensus-based standards and the best practices of total quality management can get overwhelming. But that is what it takes to operate in the complex world of the building business today. We will orient the attendees to the complicated world of Building Wall Design and Construction and introduce some reliable standards of good practice.

Through case studies, horror stories, historical review and open discussion we will review the fundamentals of good design, applicable codes and standards, and a framework for executing the construction to ensure conformance with the design.

The foundation of the program is the principles from two consensus standards from the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM): E2266 Standard Guide for Design and Construction of Low-Rise Frame Building Wall Systems to Resist Water Intrusion and E241 Standard Guide for Limiting Water-Induced Damage to Buildings.
