Webinar Understanding Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) Construction & How It Affects Thermal Envelopes

Wednesday, August 24 | 2:00 PM Central
Brian von Allworden

If used correctly, SIPs can be the foundation of a great environmental envelope. This presentation will explain what SIPs are and how they work, what they can do and what they can't do, and how to use them efficiently. By looking at SIPs through both a structural and environmental lens, it is possible to develop strategies to help maintain the superior environmental envelope that SIPs can provide while not compromising the structural integrity of the SIP structure. 


Learning Objectives:
- Gain a workable understanding of what Structural Insulated Panels are.
- Understand the two most important ways SIPs provide a superior environmental envelope.
- Learn what construction details and methods reduce the environmental effectiveness of SIPs and why they should be avoided.
- Discover tips and tricks to maintain the environmental envelope when designing and building with SIPs.

Pre-Drywall Inspections & Testing to Verify Optimized Framing and Air Sealing, Grade Insulation Installation, and Help Prevent Callbacks

Webinar Pre-Drywall Inspections & Testing to Verify Optimized Framing and Air Sealing, Grade Insulation Installation, and Help Prevent Callbacks

Tuesday, August 23 | 2:00 PM Central
Michael Arblaster

In this webinar, we will teach attendees about the specifics of pre-drywall inspections and testing. We will discuss the value of third-party pre-drywall inspections and testing for builders and raters, and how they can result in reduced callbacks. We will also examine how this aspect of the rating process has become increasingly important for consistency and defensibility for builders who choose an ERI Path for code compliance.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn about the specific minimum rated features which can be verified at the pre-drywall stage of construction; specifically proper optimized framing, air sealing and Grade I insulation installation practices.
2. Understand the benefits to builders of third-party inspection and testing, measurable quality control, lower HERS scores, and reduced callbacks.
3. Learn about the benefits to raters of more consistent and higher quality ratings, as well as increased inspection revenue streams.
4. Become aware of the requirements of pre-drywall inspections for several Energy Efficiency Programs
