BC Step Code Airtightness Training

February 6 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Overview

Learn how to detail and air barrier now and meet the BC Step Code airtightness standards with hands-on training!

This one day training covers airtightness from top to bottom in a day. Starting with a short discussion on what an air barrier is, and how to define it on your project, the day quickly becomes a hands-on class that details: how an air barrier is made; how it fits at a ceiling junction; how it connects to the foundation or slab; how it works around balconies, decks and overhangs; and how it connects to plumbing, sprinklers and vents.


Air barriers can be placed at the interior or exterior of a building. It’s common to have a section of the air barrier on the exterior and another section on the interior. Attendees will be able to experiment with ways to connect the outside to the inside and take the best advantage of project and material options. Attendees work with a wide range or air-sealing materials and get a deep understanding of available materials and how they perform.
