Torrance Kramer

In new and existing building envelope inspections, Torrance has observed the results of severe catastrophic decisions regarding air barrier design and installation procedures.

This presentation will be a highly-visual lesson on what can happen when some of these choices are made. You will learn from the mistakes of others (including Torrance), and hopefully avoid at least a few of these costly mistakes of your own. Learn the benefits of early third-party plan review and onsite inspections. See twenty years of some of the biggest air barrier flubs from someone who has seen things from the slab to the roof, from inspection to install.

Torrance Kramer is a Certified Energy Manager, Building Envelope Commissioning Professional, amongst other certifications. He is passionate about reducing energy cost and increasing building integrity for his clients. He has completed thousands of comprehensive energy audits on all types of buildings over the last 20 years. Through this it became evident that there was a lack of understanding in the field of building envelope integrity. This led Torrance to focus on specializing in air barrier testing, repairs, and general envelope commissioning for the last 15+ years. For the last 10 years, he has managed and operated Accurate-Airtight Exteriors which provides consulting, training, testing, and repairs building air and thermal barriers.
