Course Details

​This lab course will allow students to practice construction of various air barrier systems and high performance assembly details to meet the requirements of the Upper Steps of the BC Energy Step Code and the Passive House standard. Students have already developed a foundational understanding of air barriers and high performance assemblies through pre-requisite courses. With 16 hours in the BCIT High Performance Lab, students will work through a number of hands-on lab stations to build, test, or evaluate various assemblies using a range of approaches and materials. Lab activities will cover various air and thermal barrier approaches and details for foundations, above and below grade walls, roofs, interfaces, windows, balconies, penetrations, and more. An introduction to working with low-embodied carbon insulation materials will be provided. Builders, tradespeople, insulators, designers, building officials, and energy advisors would benefit from this course.
