Design for exterior cavity walls – I, II, & III

This trio of programs covers the three key elements of designing and implementing a building enclosure on the outside of a masonry or framed back-up wall system.   This method is often referred to as the “Perfect wall system.”   These include rain screen and weather-tight cladding approaches, with exterior cavity insulation, vapor and air control systems, and water management strategies.

I – Introduction to the science and design of exterior cavity wall construction
II – Detailing exterior cavity walls
III – Implementing exterior cavity walls for performance and durability
