About This Program
How do we give air barriers a chance of success? One of the risk management strategies is to require a robust quality assurance program in the specifications that require certified contractors, trained and certified installers, evaluated materials, and on-site 3rd party audits.
This presentation will discuss the role of the quality assurance audits, point out what to look for when doing site observation/quality control, and provide real life examples that can help you identify installation issues on your project, what caused them, and what corrective action can be taken.
- Understand how site quality assurance audits, field observation and sit quality control fit into an overall quality assurance and risk management strategy
- Determine responsibilities of all building enclosure stakeholders to coordinate and execute a plan for quality installation
- Identify typical issues found in the installation process and what caused these for a variety of air barrier systems by visual inspection
- Through the use of job site photo’s, demonstrate the physical testing that can be done on a variety of air barrier systems
