Through a combination of building science fundamentals and current research, this presentation will explore design considerations associated with wood-frame building enclosures and the role of control layers. Discussion will focus on best practices for designing durable, energy-efficient enclosures using traditional light wood-frame construction.

Colin Shane is a Principal at the San Francisco Bay Area office of RDH Building Science Inc., an engineering consulting firm dedicated to building science and building enclosure engineering. Colin’s experience includes design of all components of the building enclosure, including walls, glazing systems, balconies and roofs in climate zones across North America. Colin has a broad knowledge of building construction and applies building science principles to evaluate, analyze and design durable, energy-efficient building enclosures.
