Building Science Super Lab – Now Open!

We are excited to announce that we are finally building our new “Super Lab” here at the training center! This will be a ‘one-of-a-kind’ diagnostics, training and research facility for all things building science, weatherization and home performance. 2700 square feet of floor area. Walk in attic with unprecedented access to the HVAC, duct systems, recessed lighting, insulation, attic venting and thermal / air barriers. This will look like a typical two story South Western home, but we will be able to fully manipulate the systems within. It may look normal, but looks can be deceiving! The contract for this one of a kind build was awarded to Weatherwize LLC, a local commercial builder and home performance contractor that knows this industry. We are excited that Weatherwize was able to do this project because they know building performance, and know what we are trying to accomplish. The owner Brice Fawley received his BPI Building Analyst Certification here at our training center years ago. In this blog we will post pictures of the project as it happens to document the entire build. The idea is that you will be able to just scroll down and see the house get built. Here is a link to a walk thru tour I did with our new sun glass video camera http://youtu.be/lhfEayJGaCA
