As part of my continuing path of learning in the field of building science, I will be attending the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas in February 2019.

In Australia we are still in our infancy when it comes to energy efficiency, so much so that we have not yet adequately addressed the effects of moisture management and indoor air quality. Moisture and air quality problems are both unintended consequences of insulating our buildings.

In Europe and North America, energy efficiency measures have been developed over decades, and over that time problems such as moisture and air quality have arisen and been dealt with. I an attending the International Builders’ show with an intent to learn more, to speak to industry experts and come home  more knowledgeable and capable of directing my clients adequately in the pursuit of building  energy efficient, durable and healthy buildings.

The show in Las Vegas is huge. It runs for 3 days and expects over 60,000 visitors. Click on the link below to check it out.
