    The push for higher performance buildings has naturally led Owners and Designers to demand better performing building envelopes, and a call for testing and inspection services to ensure that building envelopes are performing to spec.  This workshop will demonstrate the tools and techniques commonly used for inspecting and test building envelopes, both for quality assurance during construction, and for investigation and diagnostics of problems in existing buildings.

    Group 1: Infrared Thermography

    Group 2: Roof Inspection Tools

    Group 3: Window/Component Air Leakage & Water Testing

    Group 4: Whole Building Air Leakage Testing


    This presentation is a joint seminar with the Winnipeg Construction Association (WCA). Attendees will be divided into four groups, one group assigned to each work station or tool. Presenters for each tools will make a 15-20 minute presentation/demonstration for their technology, including Q&A. Then groups will move to the next work station, and learn about another tool. This will be repeated so attendees will have a chance at each tool.

    Group sizes will kept small, 10-12 people, to ensure everyone can see and hear the presentations and has a chance to ask questions of the presenters. Their will be two sessions. One in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Please only register for one session.
