PNJ Building Industry Network Workshop - April 6, Jersey City
PNJ’s Building Industry Network (BIN), building industry professionals who are working to preserve New Jersey’s historic resources, is sponsoring the next in an ongoing series of professional workshops on April 6, 2005. “Successful Building Envelope Design, Integrating the Four Barriers” is a half-day workshop to be held at the historic Barrow Mansion near downtown Jersey City from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Building envelopes add color, texture and articulation to the form and mass of the built environment. However, aesthetics is only one component of successful building envelope design and preservation. Building envelopes must also screen and shelter occupants and objects from the outside environment and resist forces that can damage historic fabric.
The workshop will focus on the integration of moisture, thermal, air and vapor barriers and how they function in successful building envelope design. Speakers include a professional engineer who specializes in historic building rehabilitation and restoration and experts in façade treatment products and techniques. AIA Continuing Education credits will be available for the workshop.
