  • There are a number of building elements that maintain a separation between indoors and out. These elements should be able to work together to provide a comfortable and energy efficient building. This course reviews building envelope systems, with a focus on selecting performance-based products for below-grade, above-grade, and roofing applications, and a discussion on best practices for design and installation.

  • A green roof can be defined as an artificial landscape on a rooftop, consisting of plants, growing media, and drainage over a waterproof membrane. That said, there are a variety of green roof types, each meeting different needs. In this course, we’ll look at green roof design considerations, policy, system types and installation, including specifying a green roof for single-source warranty.

  • Recent changes in commercial wall assembly design are resulting in increased energy efficiency, but also new challenges to meeting fire safety provisions in Building Code. The focus of this course is on air barrier membranes and the proper integration of these materials into fire-safe wall assemblies.

  • In recent years, the construction industry has adopted standards and practices to use more insulation in buildings. This has been driven by both government and private initiatives to improve building energy efficiency. High-performance insulation is crucial for the achievement of these objectives! This course discusses the physical and performance properties of polyisocyanurate (polyiso) foam board insulation—a commercially-established, cost effective technology that is very useful for the construction of more energy efficient buildings.
