About the Workshop
Learn how, and why, to performance test commercial buildings!
Open to architects, engineers, contractors, building owners, facility managers and industry pros of ALL types, this one-day in-building educational workshop provides expert instruction on how, and why, to performance test a variety of commercial and multifamily buildings. Learn how to identify and recommend improvements for a wide variety of energy, water, comfort and other performance issues through blower door testing, visual inspection, utility bill analysis and more.
This workshop is a great opportunity for commercial and residential industry professionals to learn how to prep, test and meet the new NC Energy Code air leakage requirements for commercial and multifamily buildings. Professionals seeking to move into the commercial sector will receive a comprehensive understanding of the building science of air leakage testing and learn how to make buildings perform well in both new construction and retrofit projects. Experienced professionals can sharpen their testing skillset, take a deeper dive into the new commercial energy code requirements and how to optimize building performance and airtightness with various products and design practices.
North Carolina’s new commercial energy code, which came into effect earlier this year, creates new opportunities for industry professionals to learn these valuable skills and sell their services to customers across the state!
