Airtightness and Low-TEDI Enclosures of Zero Energy/Emmissions and Passive House Buildings

Course Details

Institution:British Columbia Institute of Technology

Length of the program:21 (hrs)

This course covers airtightness and low-TEDI enclosure construction for zero energy/emissions or Passive House buildings. The course will help learners develop their knowledge of airtightness and low thermal demand (low-TEDI) building enclosures with study of wood-frame construction. Students will develop a firm understanding of assembly details, material selection and compatibility, construction approaches, sequencing and coordination, for zero energy/emissions or Passive House buildings. Key topics include the airtightness, high R-value enclosure details, thermal bridging, assembly interfaces, windows, mechanical and electrical penetration, and embodied carbon of materials. This course is offered online with live virtual lectures and self-paced learning in the BCIT Learning Hub.
