Join the Building Enclosure Council for an afternoon workshop with hands on training for the installation of air and vapor barriers, waterproofing, and the critical tie-in details and transitions between the systems.

A 30-minute classroom session will be followed by 90 minutes of hands on training. Light food and refreshments will be provided. This workshop will be Part 1 of a two-part series of workshops focusing on the detailing of critical components of the exterior wall assembly. Part 1 begins with examining underslab/foundation waterproofing and air/vapor barrier systems on the lower section of exterior walls. The workshop session will compare liquid and sheet applied barriers and illustrate the critical tie-in details between these systems. Part 2 of the workshop will follow on June 8, 2017 at the International Masonry Institute’s National Training Center in Bowie, Maryland. The focus in Part 2 will be on the detailing of critical components of the upper portions of the exterior wall assembly. More details for this event will be released soon.

Organized by: BEC – Baltimore in conjunction with BEC-DC
