Design and Construction of 2015 Building and Energy Code-Compliant Exterior Wall Systems

New AIA Continuing Education program from Bautex

Bau­tex Sys­tems is offer­ing a new AIA Con­tin­u­ing Edu­ca­tion Pro­gram, Con­sid­er­a­tions and Impacts to Design and Con­struc­tion of 2015 Build­ing and Ener­gy Code-Com­pli­ant* Exte­ri­or Wall Sys­tems.” Offered as Lunch & Learn style in-per­son instruc­tion, this Amer­i­can Insti­tute of Archi­tects (AIA) CES approved course pro­vides a detailed review of impacts in the design and con­struc­tion of exte­ri­or wall sys­tems as a result of the 2015 Inter­na­tion­al Build­ing Code (IBC) and Inter­na­tion­al Ener­gy Con­ser­va­tion Code (IECC), and iden­ti­fies strate­gies for increas­ing per­for­mance and sim­pli­fy­ing con­struc­tion uti­liz­ing mono­lith­ic insu­lat­ed mass wall sys­tems.

Dur­ing this one-hour course, we will cov­er:

Build­ing enve­lope insu­la­tion and ener­gy effi­cien­cy require­ments in the 2015 IECC and meth­ods for com­pli­ance.
Region­al air tight­ness require­ments in the 2015 IECC and meth­ods for com­pli­ance.
Fire and life safe­ty impacts and test­ing require­ments for wall sys­tems result­ing from increased insu­la­tion require­ments in the 2015 codes.
Design changes and impacts of the 2015 codes on tra­di­tion­al wall sys­tems.
Per­for­mance and ben­e­fits of mono­lith­ic insu­lat­ed mass wall sys­tems to con­ven­tion­al built-up wall assem­blies.

Par­tic­i­pants earn 1 LU | HSW.
