Passive Rowhouse Charrette: Mad Building Science

Wed, 11/14/2018 - 6:00pm - 8:30pm

KierenTimberlake, 841 North American Street, Philadelphia PA, 19123

Mad Building Science – When Renovations Go Wrong (and sometimes how they were made right)

There are right ways and wrong ways to increase air tightness, control vapor, and renovate an average building so it becomes a high performance building. Hot on the heels of Halloween comes Mad Building Science, with terrifying stories of Renovations Gone Wrong. These aren’t your average stories about bad tile and stained carpets, these are true tales of people who meant well but didn’t understand the building science behind water, vapor, and air control, and made the buildings they were supposed to be fixing into something much, much worse…  


If you have a Mad Building Science story that you’d like to share, please email us and pitch a 5 -15 minute presentation as a part of the event on Wednesday, November 14th.  

This event is the next charrette in the Passive Rowhouse Demonstration Project series and the last one for 2018 - don't worry, the series will continue in 2019! Join  us - all are welcome!
