The goal of the Building Performance Knowledge Community (BPKC) is to promote architects as leaders in the application of technical design for building performance; in the use of high-performance design criteria, codes, and standards; and in programming, designing and managing building performance. To advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the architecture profession, AIA members, building owners, the construction industry, the academy, and the public—design practices that create buildings that are healthy, energy efficient, and durable.
I am wondering if there is any building enclosure performance verification testing being performed for the air, moisture, and thermal barriers of the building enclosures. It can be a problem for buildings with ongoing operations. Air barriers testing can be especially difficult. I have been involved with QA/QC inspections and water intrusion testing for all of the DFW terminals being remodeled and expanded.
