Using Building Science to Design and Build High Performance Homes – Class 2: High Performance Fundamentals Series

March 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Register

This is class 2 of 6 in 3C-REN’s High Performance Fundamentals Certificate series. Earn a 3C-REN certificate of completion after finishing the series and passing short quizzes at the end of each class.

 

Most of us either have or would like to forget our high school biology, chemistry, and physical science. But believe it or not, it’s spot on to translate that science into how buildings actually work. This course applies essential building science principles to the design and construction of climate-tuned, resilient, top-value homes that are better for owners, better for the environment, and better for your work as building professionals. 

What’s “better value” for owners, the environment, and you? Using science to integrate energy efficiency, thermal comfort, moisture management, durability, and resilience.  

 

Learning Objectives 

After attending this class, participants will be able to: 

  • Explain how high school-level physical, chemical, and biological principles are expressed in buildings. 
  • Provide at least two basic examples of building science in action in a typical home or office. 
  • Convey how building science influences building performance with at least two basic examples. 
  • Assess the level of building performance of a student’s own home or office using class resources.
