Energy Conservation & Condensation Control [DN-15]
Americans spend 90% of their time inside buildings which means the designers need to know how their envelope systems work to control energy & moisture. Several factors influence the actual energy performance of a building envelope so will use this time to discuss not only precast envelope systems but various wall systems both as rain barriers and rain screens.
