Guild members have been asking for more information on specific products from manufacturers representatives so you can hear directly from them how to use those products with accuracy in your work.  

SIGA representatives are in the area in conjunction with  the Annual North American Passive House Conference, and have agreed to host  a training on both on the buiding science of quality envelope construction and how to use tapes & sealing membranes correctly! 

The Three Elements for Successful Air-tight Construction: Planning, Application and Quality

The goal of this workshop is to stress the importance of air sealing when planning and constructing energy efficient building of any sort. The class shall create a basic understanding for the theory behind air tightness and the practical implementation of air sealing. As building codes for air tightness turn more stringent and the requests for energy efficient homes rise, the understanding of the performance of a building and the role of the building envelope is crucial when aiming to meet these demand.

The workshop focuses on an air sealing approach with tapes and shows potential solutions without eliminating the fact of other methods to reach the same goals.

This three-hour workshop will help improve the value you provide to your customers and will help you differentiate yourself from others in the building industry. The work shop will include examples of building assemblies, how to tackle problems of moisture management, how to design and construct an air tight envelope, and how blower doors quantify performance.  

This workshop is both discussion and "hands on". We will use SIGA membranes and adhesive tapes on model houses to understand the planning and application of a system that creates an air-tight envelope, manages both interior and exterior moisture and seals the construction from pest infiltration. 

The workshops are limited to 20 participants. If you are planning to attend the workshop, please register as early as possible. The class fills quickly.

Benjamin Lüssi,
from Switzerland, will be teaching the workshop.  Benjamin has been in the building industry since 1995 working as a Carpenter, Project Manager and now as Product Manager for SIGA - U.S.  His goal for the workshop is to teach European air sealing methods while learning more about U.S. construction methods.  SIGA is a leading provider of Air Sealing products in Europe where air sealing standards and codes are extremely stringent.  This is an exceptional opportunity for building practitioners in the Front Range to get hands on experience with European Advanced Air Sealing methods – without the expense of going to Europe. 


The workshop, which has its origin in Europe, is a basic part of the education/apprenticeship of carpenters in Germany, Switzerland and many other European countries where air tightness has been in the building codes for decades.

The Swiss company SIGA is a manufacturer of high performance air sealing adhesives and with a strong emphasize on education for this topic. Each year, several hundred workshops are thought by trainers to architect, contractors and planers.
