Tri-Cities Tech Session- Nick Shaw, CPHC, PHIUS Certified Builder

May 9 @ 11:50 am 1:00 pm

Join AIA East Tennessee for a presentation by Nick Shaw, CPHC, PHIUS Certified Builder, product consultant for 475 High Performance Building Supply.

Description: Foam Free High-Performance Building Enclosures present a clear and practical guide to achieving the highest levels of resilient and sustainable building enclosures while eliminating foam. The growing performance demands of air control, vapor control, thermal control, health, and sustainability are examined. Foam insulation, dominant in today’s high-performance marketplace, is increasingly recognized as hindering many of these building performance goals. Practitioners are therefore wanting and finding new solutions that virtually eliminate foam and provide greater performance. This presentation is a careful look at how to do it.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Define what qualities differentiate high-performance enclosures from typical construction and how those qualities are evolving. 

2. Describe practitioner concerns of foam insulation hindering efforts to meet the evolving high-performance qualities.

3. Describe how a foam-free enclosure can more robustly achieve the qualities of high performance. 

4. Describe practical methodologies practitioners can implement to successfully produce a high performance that is foam-free.
