August Allies for Efficiency 2.0: Envelope Design Principles

Envelope design is a key component of a building’s energy performance. A tighter and better insulated building can allow project teams to design smaller and more efficient HVAC systems. It also leads to lower energy consumption and construction costs. Led by expert envelope consultants, this course aims to provide architects and engineers with important knowledge necessary to lay the foundation for better envelopes, while avoiding common pitfalls.

Course Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of air tightness, thermal bridging, insulation strategies and materials selection in a building’s energy performance
  • Identify biggest mistakes and challenges in envelope design
  • Summarize the relationship between water and air barriers
  • Visualize real-world examples where envelopes succeeded or failed to address a building’s performance
