Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Veteran energy code expert, Mike DeWein, will facilitate a 90 minute session at the 2014 ABAA Conference and Trade Show. The Air Barrier Association of America conference runs from March 25 through March 27, 2014 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel, Orlando, Florida. DeWein’s session is Wednesday, March 26, 2014, from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. This session “Opportunities for ABAA Installers and Auditors with the New Energy Codes,” will give attendees the changes in the 2012 and 2015 International Energy Conservation Codes, up-to-date code compliance information and the knowledge needed to grow their business.
“I've been in the energy efficiency industry for over 30 years, and promoting commercial envelope standards in Energy Codes with some success,” said Mike DeWein. “Now, because of the efforts of ABAA and their allied organizations, we have finally broken the ice and these standards have found their way into the Energy Codes. I am excited to share my experience in the Building Performance and Energy Code area with conference attendees.”
An organization like the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) is a great resource of information on Air Barriers and Energy Codes and how those trades can be successful in providing air barrier and insulation systems. ABAA programs help support the improvement of commercial building air tightness and positively impact code compliance.
The 2014 ABAA Conference and Trade Show will be attended by design professionals, general contractors, air barrier contractors, consultants and testing labs in the industry. Educational sessions run from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm each day.
