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.
