GBA has made arrangements to provide live video streaming of an educational seminar by two renowned building science experts, Joseph Lstiburek and John Straube. Dubbed the Building Science Experts’ Session, the seminar is being held on Wednesday December 5 and Thursday December 6, 2012, in Westford, Massachusetts. Sessions begin each morning at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
The video stream will be available at no charge to all GBA Pro members. A link to the live video stream will be added to this page on the morning of December 5, 2012.
More information on the scheduled sessions
Wednesday December 5 is “Spray Foam Day” with Joseph Lstiburek. Dr. Lstiburek will present a full-day session on spray foam issues and solutions using information based on field experience and laboratory research. Throughout the day, Joe will call in other industry experts for special cameo appearances and invite other BSC researchers to report on recent work.
Thursday December 6 will feature John Straube, who will cover “HVAC for Low-Load Buildings.” Dr. Straube will define low-load and ultra-low-load buildings, and will discuss the enclosures that are needed to get there. Next, the implications of these low load enclosures on heating, ventilation, hot water, and other building systems will be explored. Fossil-fueled, electric, solar and biomass will all be addressed. This session is intended for designers and builders of ultra efficient residential (i.e., Passive House, DOE Challenge Home, and similar) and smaller commercial buildings.
