Building science principles are required to understand how a building functions and reacts to its environment, and to improve its efficiency and durability. You will investigate the effects that the movement of air, heat, moisture and wind have on the building envelope and be able to describe critical components such as insulating materials, air and vapour barriers, their use, applications and properties. A variety of building envelope solutions for cold climates will be explored.
