“Unlocking the Puzzle of Building Envelope Continuity” SPONSORED BY SOPREMA

Date: Thursday November 8, 2018 NETWORKING: 5:30PM-6:30PM; DINNER: 6:30-7:30PM; PRESENTATION: 7:15-8:15PM

Location: Avenue One at Hyatt Regency Boston One Avenue De Lafayette Boston, MA 02111

Today's buildings continue to push the envelope on architectural design, energy efficiency, construction timelines and cost reductions forcing building materials and application techniques to evolve. The evolution of products and applications to waterproof the entire building envelope (vertical and horizontal) throughout the variety of construction materials has created a blend between established and newly developed waterproofing technologies. These blended technologies have the single purpose to integrate and create a continuous system that performs harmoniously and protects the building from moisture.
This presentation helps identify the challenges and opportunities to build an integrated waterproofing system addressing all six sides of the building envelope. While each type of installation will be reviewed separately, the platform will be set for successful integration at all of the transitions and changes within the building by the proper identification and specification of compatible products and materials.
Learning Objectives:

Put the science behind positive side waterproofing to use in effective planning.
Reinforce available technologies for above and below grade applications of waterproofing as well as performance-based wall systems.
Understand the science behind per-

formanced based wall systems.

Provide continuity between wall and

waterproofing systems through
proper product selection and
