Chris Clark: As manager of Huber Engineered Woods’ Product Engineering Team, Chris Clark is a technical resource providing consulting to contractors on the job site, as well as architects and engineers in regards to how HEW products can be incorporated into their design to meet local building codes. Since graduating with a Masters of Science in Civil Engineering with a focus on structural engineering, his decade of industry experience is centered on the design requirements of wood-framed structures.
Designing control barriers to manage bulk water, air, thermal bridging and vapor in building enclosures is only the beginning to an effective exterior. While straightforward along flat, continuous surfaces, it is the non-continuous conditions, including transitions, penetrations and interruptions that present design and construction complexity to maintain effective barrier performance. This course emphasizes critical areas, in which detailing continuity in these control barriers are important to address, especially when using today’s integrated sheathing systems.
Learning Objectives - After viewing this webinar, attendees should be able to:
- Explain the four primary, code based control layers that make up a building enclosure system.
- Define the primary issues related to continuity of building enclosure control layers in wood-framed wall and roof assemblies.
- Review the common choices for products and materials for building enclosure control layers, including critical transitional areas.
- Compare different drawing details and solutions for their use in wood-framed wall and roof assemblies.
