Description:

Students will learn the tools and techniques used in the analysis of building shell integrity, with a focus upon combustion safety testing, gas leakage testing, complemented again by the use of the thermal imaging camera. These concepts and skills will be taught through extensive lab-hours working directly with the tools of the trade over the program schedule. Students will develop skills doing assessments related to thermal and moisture problems in buildings in order to maintain healthy indoor air quality. Course will include air flow, metrics and standards for building tightness (BPI), equipment tolerances for combustion safety and testing procedure, and implications on occupant health and safety.
