Commissioning (Cx) – John Runkle will explain the connection between a functional building enclosure and occupant health and safety and how to enhance the performance of you next project. His presentation will allow participants to understand and apply the full pallet of building enclosure related testing from lab to field. The group will discuss how our changing environments and construction practices dictate modifications to traditional building enclosure quality assurance and will explore how building enclosure commissioning can help you right size mechanical equipment, by understanding what quantifiable results are achievable in today’s buildings.
Performance Verification Testing – Jennifer Keegan will discuss the challenges with integrating windows, storefronts and curtain walls with air barriers. She will share tips for addressing conditions that are difficult to detail (sill pans, receptor systems, lintels, end dams) and strategies for successful air and water testing of the window and wall as an assembly.
John Runkle, P.E., Vice President – Building Sciences. A graduate of the Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Civil Engineering, Mr. Runkle has been heavily involved in the development of Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) as a practice.
Jennifer Keegan, Regional Manager of the Building Sciences Group. Ms. Keegan has 17 years’ experience as a building enclosure consultant.
