Description: The building envelope is the collection of material assemblies that separate a building’s interior from the exterior environment. This course examines the interaction of those assemblies with natural forces such as temperature, moisture, and solar radiation and the details of construction which have evolved to mitigate them. The subject matter includes both traditional building exterior wall and roof construction and newer technologies such as rainscreen, green roof, and building surface media systems. This course addresses sustainability issues related to enclosure systems through energy cost and carbon footprint analysis. It is the third of four required courses in the architectural technology sequence. Cross-list: ARCH 314. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for ARCH 514 if student has credit for ARCH 314.
