  • Course Description: AEC Daily: Introduction to Existing Building Retrofits


    This program introduces building retrofits as a method to achieve green building standards by adapting existing structures. While a building retrofit may have several types of interventions, effective air sealing improves the durability of the structure and occupant comfort, health, and safety. This course includes a detailed look at sources of air leakage and the various methods available to address this infiltration. Several real-world examples demonstrate the importance of identifying the source of air leakage, investigating existing conditions, and proper detailing.



    Learning Objective

    Discuss why retrofitting existing buildings has environmental benefits over demolition and new construction.

    Discuss the role of air leakage in causing drafts, water infiltration, the growth of mold, high energy costs, and an uncomfortable occupant experience.

    Summarize key considerations for air-sealing retrofits and show how they impact and improve indoor air quality and occupant comfort.

    Discuss the importance of air-sealing continuity to achieve energy and cost savings and to reduce the impact of buildings on the environment.
