Description

Spend an hour learning about building assemblies with Peter Yost of BuildingGreen.

Heat dries them out, so the more we manage energy flows through our building assemblies, the more we need to manage moisture on, in, and through those same assemblies.

This lecture covers just how heat and moisture can move in building assemblies, how to manage both, and the tools that are available to evaluate or predict hygrothermal performance of building assemblies.

I have had the privilege to be in the audience for several of Peter’s presentations on best-practices and strategies for green and sustainable building. Each time I have gone away with a wealth of new information, thoughts and education. He definitely lives up to his national “Green Guru” reputation. I you have an opportunity to hear him speak or to hire him to speak to your group, you should not miss it!
