BSC seminars provide high-quality, up-to-date building science information to professionals in the building industry seeking to differentiate themselves from their competitors by using the principles of building science to mitigate risk and build high-performance, energy efficient, durable, and healthy buildings. Seminars are engaging and delivered by leaders in forensic investigation, building science research, and risk mitigation with extensive design and field experience in residential, commercial and institutional construction.
Building Science Fundamentals is a LIVE! virtual seminar that teaches the basic knowledge needed to design and build durable, energy-efficient, affordable, and healthy buildings. Our past registrants have benefitted tremendously from the interactive sessions with Dr. Lstiburek where questions are encouraged. Because of that, we limit attendance to 50 or so. Each $595.00 series consists of 4 afternoons of instruction. Upon completion of the seminar, members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) will receive 16 LU|HSW posted directly to the AIA Provider website. The schedule is shown below. The time for the sessions will be from 1:00-5:00 pm EST. Dr. Joseph Lstiburek will discuss building science principles (such as the control of heat, air, and moisture and IAQ) and show you how to apply them to low-energy enclosure design, advanced HVAC systems, forensic investigations, and the repair and retrofit of existing buildings. Building Science Fundamentals has been attended by thousands of builders, architects, engineers, building science consultants, building code officials, facility managers, building product manufacturers, and government officials.

You have a house, you have a mess and you want to fix it. How do you keep the rain out of it? How do you make it energy efficient, not violate the building code and not irritate your contractor and the owner? How do you not screw up the historic significance if there is any? What about apartments? What about frame houses? How do you deal with brick and masonry basement foundations from the inside? What are sacrificial mortars and renderings? Should I worry about freeze-thaw damage when I insulate on the interior? How do I insulate on the exterior of a mass wall assembly? More questions - and more answers.
