Peering Into Enclosure Details

A key step in achieving high-performance building enclosures is having a thorough set of contract documents, complete with well-developed enclosure details. The details help in relaying the design intent for interface conditions between building enclosure materials as well as showing the continuity of the air, moisture, and thermal barrier layers. Oftentimes, Architects will have their drawings peer-reviewed by other firms specializing in building enclosures to verify that the details are accurate and constructible and that there are no missing critical details. This presentation will begin by providing an overview of the peer review process and typical comments made during reviews of the plans, elevations, and details. Following the overview, the audience will be broken out into teams to review example details. In the end, everyone will reconvene to discuss the details and comments.
