Building Science Sessions

The Ozarks Regional Building Enclosure Council and CSI Southwest Missouri are proud to announce a 2018 CSI Tradeshow Day After Event featuring Dr. Lstiburek.

Join Dr. Joseph "Joe" Lstiburek, dubbed the "dean of North American building science" by the Wall Street Journal, for a day full of learning and laughter!

Morning Session:
Building Science 301

7:30 - 11:30 AM (breakfast provided)

This session will address the technical requirements for building enclosures and will delve into the practice on how to control heat, air, and moisture flow as well as solar and other radiation. Joe will discuss hygrothermal analysis and why modeling does not work but why you have to do it.

Afternoon Session One
The Perfect Wall - Keeping the Outside Out and the Inside In

12:30 - 2 PM

Principles of rain control and how windows, storefronts and curtain walls need to be connected to walls. Joe will talk about "the two kinds of windows in the world... those that leak and those that will leak." This session will offer solutions to the reality of windows and glazing systems.

Afternoon Session Two:
Roofing - Where the Building Touches the Sky

2:30 PM - 4 PM

Flat roofs, sloping roofs, shingle roofs, membrane roofs... do you vent or do you not vent? Do you need a vapor barrier or not? What happens with metal roofs? Ice dams? What happens when you have a pool? How about an ice rink? Questions, questions, and more questions will be covered and answered.
