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:
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.

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.
