The Texas State Energy Conservation Office presents an overview of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 2010, the required code for state-funded buildings. This is Part 2 of a five-part series. This second video covers envelope provisions including wall, roof, and fenestration, and envelope compliance paths. The workshop is intended for engineers, architects, and code officials, who anticipate either applying, conforming to, or evaluating the latest ASHRAE energy efficiency standards for commercial building projects in Texas.
This webinar presentation is to educate QA staff on the importance of the field role in affecting proper QA over the construction of high performance building envelopes across the wide array of feature the envelope can contain. Major topics will include what the purpose of the document is, its use and discuss some of the content. The presenter is Nick Alexander, a Construction Representative out of the US Army Corps of Engineers Omaha District stationed at Fort Carson, CO. Host: Eric Mucklow
US Building Consultants Inc Principal/CEO Scott “Spiderman” Mulholland talks about why sealants are an integral piece of a building’s envelope.

Friday 23rd October 2009. Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. Russell Huffer, Chairman and CEO of Viracon’s parent company, Apogee Enterprises, presents at the CTBUH 2009 Chicago Conference. Many believe that the envelope of a tall building has a significant role to play in responding to climate change. The tall building envelope certainly has a major influence on overall building performance, or sustainability, as well as its aesthetic or design appeal. In this presentation we hear from the CEO of one of the world’s largest suppliers of façade materials — Viracon — on what strategies can be developed with respect to envelope.
Buildings are affected by usage, weather, and location. Over 90% of buildings regulate to these changing conditions poorly.
Your building operates at less than 60% load almost all the time (90% of the time). Learn how Design Envelope takes your building to optimum pumping efficiency, saving energy and costs.
Roy Schauffele from Division 7 Solutions, Inc. presents the first part of “BUILDING ENVELOPE TECHNOLOGY: AIR BARRIER TECHNOLOGY UPDATE & DEMONSTRATION” during the Sustainable Learning Environments…The Green $$$ in Green Design Workshop hosted and presented by the Office for Sustainability at the University of Texas – Pan American in Edinburg, Texas, March 6, 2012. Mr. Schauffele discusses how to properly develop performance specifications for FLUID APPLIED BARRIERS based on performance testing, standards, and codes. See actual Fluid Applied Barriers in the second part of this presentation located on this Youtube channel. The presentation was introduced by Marianella Quiroga-Quintanilla, Director of Sustainable Programs for the Office for Sustainability at UTPA.
How to determine the real performances of buildings?
Building characterisation by co-heating

In order to reduce the energy use of buildings, several countries have put forward more stringent requirements on the energy performance of new and renovated buildings. Without exception, these buildings are characterised or awarded a label in the design phase. A theoretical energy use calculated on the basis of building plans and specifications determines the performance category.
An important distinction needs to be made, however, between this theoretical energy performance and the actual ‘as-built’ performance. Several studies have shown that these can differ rather significantly.
The energy performance of a building is essentially determined by the (1) thermal characteristics of the building envelope, (2) installed services and (3) building usage. As the latter is not easily predicted nor controlled, the first two are decisive in achieving the envisaged building energy performance, both for new buildings and renovations. Hence, the thermal performance characterisation of a building envelope represents a crucial first step to bridge the gap between ‘designed’ and ‘as-built’ energy performance of the building. A common method to evaluate the thermal performance of a building in situ is the co-heating test.
This webinar tries to crystallise the current knowledge on the co-heating test, as applied for assessing the thermal characteristics of the building envelope.
The webinar is organised in the framework of the IEA Annex 58 ‘Reliable building energy performance characterisation based on full scale dynamic measurements’ through the DYNASTEE platform (www.dynastee.info) which is facilitated by INIVE (www.inive.org).

An overview on the concerpt of building science by Alex Stadtner, Building Biologies and president of Healthy Building Science. What is building science and why does it matter in design?? Looking at how water and heat transfer through the building envelope. how to prolong the life of the building and prevent moisture and mold issues from occurring. Looking at a building from a building biologist perspective as a living organism that needs to breath!
