Attend the Allies for Efficiency course on advanced envelope design

Envelope design is a key component of a building’s energy performance. When a building is tightly constructed and properly insulated, it allows project teams to design HVAC systems that are smaller, more efficient and less redundant. It also leads to lower energy consumption and construction costs. This Allies for Efficiency 2.0 training course provides architects and engineers with important knowledge necessary to lay the foundation for better envelopes while avoiding common pitfalls.

Attendees will learn about the importance of air tightness, thermal bridging, insulation strategies and the selection of materials to a building’s energy performance. The course will also identify the biggest mistakes and challenges in envelope design, summarize the relationship between water and air barriers, and provide real-world examples of where envelopes succeeded and/or failed to improve a building’s performance.
