Education can improve building envelope construction
The building envelope is more than just a pretty façade. Functioning as the skin of the building, the envelope is responsible for thermal comfort, air quality, and structural support. It's also the largest factor in energy expenditures, determining how much fuel the building consumes and how much of the owner's budget will go up the chimney. When the envelope fails, owners and users face the possibility of serious health issues, large energy bills, and costly remediation.
