Catch LP Building at the 2018 IBS High Performance Building Zone

When most architects and builders talk about “high-performance construction,” they’re usually referring to building science innovations that help achieve the highest levels of energy efficiency and indoor air quality. But “high performance” goes way beyond that: making walls and floors straighter and sturdier, solving moisture and durability problems, and much more.

The upcoming High-Performance Building Zone (HPBZ) sessions at the 2018 IBS show prove that high efficiency now has a much broader definition. HPBZ will feature 30-minute presentations by some of today’s most acclaimed building science experts. 

Here are some sessions you won’t want to miss:

  • “Higher Expectations for High-Performance Building” – Gord Cooke will discuss why warped wood andless-than-straight walls are no longer signs of a house with “character.” He’ll also explore how new engineered wood technology can make for straighter and more moisture-resistant floors. Our LP® TechShield® radiant barrier sheathing and LP Legacy® sub-flooring will be shown in applications throughout the presentation. (Tuesday January 9th 10:30 – 11:00am)

If you can’t make a full session at the demonstration stage, be sure to swing by the Building Performance Lab to see high performance building techniques and practices up-close and in action in a small, finished model home. Our high-performance products like LP® FlameBlock® Sheathing, LP® SmartSide® Trim and Siding and LP® TechShield® Sheathing will be on display.

LP Building Products is proud to be a sponsor of the HPBZ to help promote the practical, real-world side of why building science and high-performance building is transforming the housing industry.
