Course Descriptions
The evolution of building and energy codes & standards necessarily impacts selection of materials, components, and building envelope systems and sub-systems. This course describes multiple available code compliant air barrier options and targets life-of-structure cost effectiveness.

This course also touches upon innovative developments that enable design professionals to demonstrate commercial energy code compliance using COMcheck in cold climate zones, and where building codes require concrete masonry buildings to be more heavily reinforced.

Lastly, the course compares the relative unit cost of the various available air barrier compliance options.

Learning Objectives

  • Air barriers limit airflow between conditioned and unconditioned spaces.
  • ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC require sealing building envelopes to minimize air leakage through building envelopes.
  • Integrally insulated concrete masonry buildings outperform continuously insulated framed buildings.
  • Insulated concrete masonry buildings cost less, pass COMcheck, and comply with energy code air barrier criteria.

Learning Units: 1 Hour LU
