This lecture will be targeted towards professionals in the green building industry, and is the first in a two-part series. This two part series will discuss important design considerations that apply to high performance building envelopes.  From foundations to roof assemblies, this series will discuss the importance of eliminating thermal bridging and achieving a continuous insulation layer and air barrier, highlighting important areas for both design and structural detailing. With unique experience building and designing with various systems, we will discuss the pros and cons of various insulation and framing systems, highlighting local case study examples.

For our first session, we will provide an overview of passive house theory, common passive house envelope design strategies, and best practices in construction.   The key concepts described in the presentation will include understanding of the importance of continuous air and thermal barriers, thermal bridge free detailing, and European passive house glazing design and shading strategies.  An overview of common passive house modeling software will also be reviewed.

Our speakers will be Brian Fuentes, AIA, CPHC, Steven Rouisse, M. Arch, LEED AP, and Megan Monroe, M.S., of fuentesdesign.
