As a very common external wall type in commercial and residential buildings, when specified incorrectly, Precast walls have been referred to as the ‘wall of death’ due to the challenge of correct condensation management.
Presented in a 50-minute webinar, Darren O'Dea was on hand to answer some of your questions and get you on track to:
- Understand the thermal and moisture requirements for precast walls within the National Construction Code.
- Provide climate by climate examples of good and bad examples of precast wall build-ups.
- Correctly specify precast walls on your next project.
NOTE: In the final slides, the author mixes the terms air barrier and vapour barrier. The intent is to state that AIR BARRIERS are good solutions and VAPOUR BARRIERS are not.
