September General Membership Meeting: “The Systems Approach to Designing a House: The Science Behind Residential Design”
Join us for our September General Membership Meeting! Our topic will be:
ARCHITECTS, BRING YOUR FAVORITE REMODELERS AND CONTRACTORS! CONTRACTORS AND REMODELERS, BRING YOUR FAVORITE ARCHITECT! LET’S ALL GET ON THE SAME PAGE.
With so much focus on improving energy efficiency within homes, this program is a back to basics approach, reviewing building science fundamentals in the residential context. Single family residential design and improvement is both an art and a science. This talk covers the laws governing each of these system dynamics: The flow of heat, the flow of air, and the flow of moisture.
