Air Infiltration and Its Consequences for Building Enclosures in Hot/Humid Climate

The consequences of unintentional air leakage through building enclosures for hygrothermal performance depend on many parameters such as climate zone and airtightness. The presenters recently published studies to quantify the risk of microbial growth in cold climate zones for building enclosures having a split insulation arrangement to meet code requirements. In this study, they focus on quantifying the risk in those zones of microbial growth and potential deterioration of interior gypsum wallboard for exterior walls in hot and humid climate zones because of unintentional exterior air infiltration. Several partially unknown parameters—namely air infiltration rates depending on airtightness, actual indoor temperatures, perm ratings of interior paints and exterior water-resistive air barriers, and their impact on the hygrothermal performance—are considered.

“To Be or Not To Be”: A Case Study of the Wind Impact Analysis of an Aged Curtainwall

As extreme weather events are becoming both more frequent and intense, essential facilities face a dual threat of increased wind pressures and airborne debris impacts, particularly at facilities with glazed curtainwall systems. Furthermore, the structural and waterproofing elements of these curtainwalls may have experienced age-related deterioration. This case study considers an existing medical office building with a 1960s curtainwall system. Investigators evaluated whether it could accommodate current code-level wind pressure impacts, and the evaluation was used to develop conceptual schemes to implement hardening retrofits or other appropriate restoration options that would better allow the facility to functionally remain operational during extreme weather wind events. The presentation addresses building codes and industry consensus standards used during this evaluation such as ASCE 7-16, Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures, and ASTM E1996, Standard Specification for Performance of Exterior Windows, Curtain Walls, Doors, and Impact Protective Systems Impacted by Windborne Debris in Hurricanes. Particular focus will be placed on current technologies to both understand and improve the resiliency and sustainability of existing curtainwall systems.

Deflection, Seismic Drift, Panel Walls, and Control Layers

Building structures are not entirely static, as they are designed to deflect and move under various loading conditions such as live loads, wind loads, and seismic loads. Some movement locations such as building expansion joints, cladding expansion joints, and curtainwall stack joints are typically well defined by the architectural design of the building. In many instances, however, the movement of a building structure occurs at more subtle interface and transition conditions that are not always clearly defined architecturally. Determining the location of this movement can become increasingly complex with unitized and panelized wall systems in seismic areas that have airtightness requirements.

This presentation provides background on how building structures move and the impact that movement has on enclosure systems and their geometry. This presentation also suggests design approaches for identifying the building movement locations to address control layer continuity.

Are Air Barriers, Vapor Barriers, and Water-Resistive Barriers the Same?

People use the terms “weather barrier,” “vapor barrier,” “air barrier,” and “water-resistive barrier” interchangeably, which results in confusion in the industry. For example, design professionals may be critical of the water vapor transmission rate of a barrier material when the real problem is the air control area. To address this confusion, the presenter explains that the industry should first define these barrier terms as functions and then look at materials to determine whether they can provide the intended function. Proper understanding of these terms and what their function is in a building enclosure is becoming more critical as we move to higher-performing buildings.

Wind Resistance of Standing Seam Roofs and Their Interaction with Roof-Mounted Solar Panels

Standing seam roofs (SSRs) behave somewhat differently than other roof coverings when exposed to wind uplift pressures. Their design came under closer scrutiny after Hurricane Andrew struck south Florida in 1992. Since then, our knowledge of SSR wind resistance has increased considerably, such that SSRs can now be properly tested, designed, and installed to meet relatively high wind design pressures, including in perimeter and corner roof areas.

This presentation explains that external seam clamps or wind clamps can substantially increase the wind uplift resistance of an SSR if they properly fit the seam profile and are installed correctly. They may change the failure mode of the SSR, and the limiting factor of the enhanced assembly will likely be the strength of the internal clip. When securing solar panels to an SSR, it is important that the clamps used to secure them be attached to each deck rib to follow the wind load path of the SSR design and prevent overloading internal clips

Making the Connection: Fastening Through Continuous Insulation

Despite its many benefits,  continuous insulation in exterior wall systems separates the cladding from the supporting structural framing (often by 2 in. or more), which can create severe demands on fasteners bridging the gap. Connection details become increasingly challenging to reasonably resolve demands and capacities, particularly with heavier claddings and thicker continuous insulation. The industry has responded to some degree: designers are being more creative, suppliers are developing proprietary thermally improved framing or clip systems, and model building codes recently incorporated fastening requirements. However, the industry has not fully addressed the complex array of conditions that can be encountered and the associated engineering issues to efficiently provide proper performance of the exterior wall system. This presentation discusses the complex behaviors of the seemingly simple cladding connections through continuous insulation, associated design challenges, concepts for resolving demands and capacities, and current requirements recently adopted in the International Building Code.

Using Building Enclosure Commissioning to Outline a Comprehensive Control Process

Historically, the most common area of building failure is the exterior enclosure. When applied systematically, building enclosure commissioning (BECx) services can significantly reduce the risk of future water infiltration; improve facility operation and maintenance; and reduce the life-cycle cost of the facility for the life of the building. The BECx process confirms that building enclosure system and assembly functionality, durability, and constructability, design and installation quality, and interoperability will meet the owner’s project requirements. BECx services, however, can vary greatly and are commonly misunderstood. The presentation explains step by step how BECx can outline a comprehensive control process that is fully integrated into project delivery. Through case studies, the presenter provides specific steps to scope, lead, plan, schedule, and execute BECx.

Waterproofing Challenges in Hydrostatic Conditions

As our urban and suburban spaces are becoming increasingly congested, the building industry is designing and constructing projects in areas and conditions that were previously considered uninhabitable, including below-grade spaces under constant hydrostatic pressure. Efforts to make such spaces habitable may include the use of waterproofing systems not previously used in the region. Discussion of the application of familiar materials in unfamiliar conditions may be useful to colleagues and industry professionals to help identify potential hazards and pitfalls associated with these waterproofing applications.

In addition to the selection of waterproofing material and design detailing, this presentation explores preconstruction activities and applied strategies from the presenters’ experience. Various lessons learned in the field from projects with similar hydrostatic conditions are also reviewed. These lessons include recommended considerations for concrete placement, appropriate interfaces with other building enclosure systems, and repair solutions for possible damages resulting from unanticipated field conditions.

We will also outline strategies for successfully implementing delegated designs within both traditional and modern project delivery methods. In traditional design-bid-build projects, specifications play a critical role in defining the expectations for project team members. Meanwhile, newer project delivery methods ensure specialty designers and contractors are contracted early in the design process. With the advent of building enclosure commissioning, early project involvement of building enclosure consultants and BECx Providers can add value in the form of additional quality assurance to protect stakeholder interests.

“Return to Glory”: Restoring Safety to Tampa General Hospital’s Brick Facade

Tampa General Hospital is an award-winning medical center serving Tampa Bay, Fla. The hospital first opened in 1927 and has since undergone various expansions and renovations. In 2015, facility staff observed near the West Pavilion’s main entrance that brick masonry units had fallen, presenting an overhead safety hazard for hospital patients and visitors. Walter P Moore was retained to evaluate the general condition of the brick facade and recent brick failure, provide repair recommendations, and perform construction administration services during the repair work. The investigative team used more than 30 exploratory openings through the brick facade to observe concealed conditions, and identified several unique issues that necessitated widespread repairs. Unforeseen conditions also surfaced during the repair work, presenting several interesting challenges. This presentation discusses the methods of assessment and repair at the hospital, and how the team overcame the challenges of performing repairs to a facility that remained fully operational during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Water Tower Place Marble Facade Restoration

Water Tower Place is a 74-story building constructed in 1976. The exterior facade is generally constructed of 1½-in.thick Georgia Cherokee Solar Gray marble stone veneer panels, with flush aluminum-framed windows. The panels are typically restrained using stainless steel kerfs at the bottom corners or center of the panels, and stainless steel pins at the top and sides of the panels.

In December 2003, the owner was advised that bowing of the marble facade panels and presumed accompanying marble strength loss had accelerated after 25 years of slow but linear weakening—the marble had lost 30% of its strength in roughly 30 years.

This presentation reviews efforts to extend the facade’s service life to 2025 or longer. After hundreds of strength tests were evaluated and an updated wind tunnel test was performed, nearly 17,000 custom repair anchors were installed in the building from 2007 through 2009. In the years since then, additional yearly examinations have been performed, along with additional stone testing. The repairs implemented nearly 20 years ago have kept the facade serviceable, and the future serviceable life is currently being studied.

Assessing the Performance, Application, and Cost of Retrofit Wall Systems for Residential Buildings

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and the University of Minnesota have been conducting a three-year study of residential retrofit wall systems. The researchers have identified, tested, and verified the hygrothermal performance of 16 wall assemblies in retrofit applications. The approach to this study includes a comprehensive literature review, the involvement of an advisory group of thermal enclosure experts, small-scale experimental in situ testing of the wall assemblies at the University of Minnesota’s Cloquet Residential Research Facility, and energy and hygrothermal simulation of wall assemblies using EnergyPlus, THERM, and WUFI. Simulation and experimental results are then combined with an economic analysis to produce a techno-economic study of residential wall systems for deep energy retrofits.

This presentation summarizes the findings of this research project and is intended to guide architects and designers on how to retrofit existing wall assemblies without creating durability issues.

Wet Concrete Can Ruin a Good Roof Design: Insights to Cement Your Success

With misinformation swirling around the topic of moisture in concrete roof decks, it can be difficult to know the right approach to take to mitigate risk. Key questions include:

  • Are roof failures due to moisture in concrete primarily associated with the use of lightweight concrete decks?
  • When can the building interior facilitate downward drying of a wet concrete roof deck?
  • Is 28 days the right amount of time to let a new concrete deck cure before installing a roof?
  • Are admixtures and moisture vapor–reduction additives effective in mitigating concerns around moisture in concrete roof decks?
  • Are vapor retarders the answer? What about vented base sheets?
  • Which adhesives and insulation and cover board facers are appropriate to use in these roof assemblies?

The presenters explore this industry-wide issue, debunk some of the myths, provide a framework to discuss these risks with the project team, review design considerations, and discuss guidelines to mitigate your risk.

Evolution of Sheet Metal Window Sill Flashing: Lessons Learned that Lead to Better Performance

Flashings are often the most challenging aspect of aluminum window system design and installation on both new and replacement projects. Although the aluminum window system and its performance are often well detailed by the window manufacturer, providing a waterproof transition of the window frame to cladding system interface can be challenging. Metal sill flashings have been used in the construction industry as a supplemental element in window systems (in addition to the manufacturer’s standard sill design). However, inadequate attention to sill flashing detailing can result in water leakage into the exterior enclosure and even into the building interior. Historically, metal sill flashing was often continued into the rough opening of the window, and this method is sometimes still used today. This presentation addresses how going beyond the standardized approach to detailing, and taking into consideration the installers’ sequencing of components during installation, can minimize potential pathways for water intrusion.

Wind Performance of Buildings: Building Enclosure and Rooftop Equipment Challenges

The 2020 Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Mitigation Assessment Team (MAT) report on Hurricane Michael in Florida (FEMA P-2077) states, “Overall, the MAT’s assessments of buildings impacted by Hurricane Michael and other recent hurricanes show that structural systems of buildings built to modern building codes are performing well. As performance of structural systems has improved, the vulnerability of the building envelope has become increasingly apparent.”

This presentation describes the state of building enclosure wind performance at the time of Hurricanes Hugo and Andrew (1989, 1992); explains the reasons for improved wind performance of building enclosures during the past 30 years; and presents the challenges (obstacles) for further improvement of the wind performance of building enclosures. The presentation also explores roles and opportunities for building enclosure designers and consultants, manufacturers, contractors, and IIBEC to enhance the wind performance of building enclosures.

Resisting Water Infiltration from Cladding Attachment Penetrations in the Wall Assembly

How do you make sure penetrations through your already installed air and water barrier are watertight? The method of sealing of cladding attachments through the wall assembly are critical to the building performance. To create a relevant, data-backed solution, a robust test plan was developed using a statistical test design and implemented to test all the variables of interest. Then, a statistical model was built to predict the probability of leaks with various sealing solutions. The process was used to determine which type of flashing and sealing solution is best to ensure watertightness after cladding attachments are installed over polyisocyanurate insulating sheathing. This presentation shares the basis of the test plan and research methodology as well as the findings on sealing penetrations through this system.
