Wagdy Anis Symposium
For two decades, Massachusetts has been a pioneer in the development of code requirements that support energy conservation. This session will begin with a discussion of current efforts of the Energy Advisory Committee to continue this trend. In response to the higher performance demanded by codes as well as by building owners, building enclosure commissioning has become an effective tool for ensuring that exterior wall, roof and foundation assemblies perform as optimally as intended. Members of a building enclosure commissioning training team assembled by National Institute of Building Sciences will describe standards for the building enclosure commissioning process which form the basis for training and certification now available from NIBS.
