The building envelope has become a superhighway of possibility. From whole systems to multiple component assemblies the options are endless. While the choices are as plentiful as ever the key role of the envelope has never changed. It serves as structure, water defense, air defense, vapor defense, thermal protection and decoration. Furthermore, its ability to control the lived-in environment greatly influences comfort and indoor air. This session will explore a variety of envelope options and look for value and performance in these options as well as share best practices for managing interior comfort and indoor air quality. Designations: AB, AA, AR, ARS
