Building Science Digests

Building Science Digests provide building industry professionals from different disciplinary backgrounds with a concise overview of fundamental building science topics. They were inspired by the Canadian Building Digests produced by the National Research Council of Canada starting in 1960, which in turn drew on a long history of other practice-oriented publications.

BSC Building Science Digests focus on translating theory into practical, usable information. Some address a broad topic such as building enclosure design, while others illustrate the applicability of building science to more specific or specialized issues such as strawbale construction. Building Science Digests are keystone BSC documents, exemplifying the ideas and research approaches that we view as critical to our work
