In the second Builders’ Breakfast Seminar this month, attendees will be looking at why air barriers fail.  Airtightness is key component for high-performance but without a single prescriptive approach, builders may overlook important strategies that may lead to failures.  A long-standing advocate of high-performance building and HAVAN’s Technical Committee Chair,  Shaun St. Amour of 475 High-Performance Products will dive into design, components, sequencing and execution principles and strategies to help builders ensure they make enclosure airtightness a core competency of their project delivery.

Who Should Attend

Builders, site staff, trades, designers, suppliers, EAs, building officials and inspectors.
