ShiftBuilding Demo & Workshop: Advanced Wall Assemblies

TO BE RESCHEDULED – Those who have already signed up will receive an email with more specific details. Stay Tuned.

With each new code cycle, our industry professionals are required to design and build to more stringent targets.
Join this comprehensive workshop on designing and building the advanced walls needed to meet and exceed the demands of our future energy codes. Huber Engineered Woods will demonstrate their Zip System R-Sheathing product, while Small Planet Supply will demonstrate multiple products to construct 2018 code compliant advanced wall assemblies.
Attendees will gain hands-on experience while learning:
– How Zip System R-Sheathing can be a pathway to meeting the new 2018 WA State Energy Code.
– How to properly install high-performance windows in high-performance wall assemblies.
– Different options for detailing high-performance wall assemblies while practicing how to properly install each component.
– The advantages of (3) different high-performing wall assemblies, and what makes them different.
– Explore different types of air & weather barriers from adhesive to liquid applied.
Join us as we provide a safe place (i.e. not your real project) to learn about these specific advanced wall assemblies:
– Huber Engineered Wood’s Zip System R-Sheathing
– Conventional 2×6 wall w/exterior Thermacork Insulation (R-21+R-4 ci)
– Double stud wall to achieve an assembly with a UA code reduction of 30%
Space is limited to 20 attendees.
