Air and Moisture Control in Commercial Buildings

Laverne Dalgleish, Executive Director of the Air Barrier Association of America, and Andrew Dunlap, Principal & Building Technology Studio Leader with SmithGroup, Inc., will lead four sessions over the course of the day describing how to incorporate effective air barriers in nonresidential and multifamily buildings. An air barrier is key to building a safe, healthy, durable, comfortable, and energy-efficient building. Limiting infiltration of air into wall and roof assemblies is key to moisture management. More energy-efficient construction increases the importance of an air barrier because greater levels of insulation increase the chance that warm moisture-laden air will contact a cool surface inside a wall or roof assembly with water condensation the result. Learn ways to manage moisture by limiting air infiltration and creating building assemblies that permit drying when condensation does occur.
