    Over the past several years, the building envelope concept has been well promoted and established as a means for energy efficiency and building performance. With the vast product offering available today comes confusion and misinformation. Building designers are often left guessing about product compatibility and proper design, leading to the potential of costly failures. The focus of this presentation is to dive deeper, beyond the concept, and into proper building envelope design. The presentation aims to educated attendees on proper product selection and performance characteristics, codes and testing, and proper tie-in detailing to ensure a continuous air seal.
