Benjamin Meyer, AIA, LEED AP

Management of moisture, air, vapor, and thermal performance, as well as wind resistance requirements, are critical at the wall-to-roof interface. This session will provide guidelines to successfully navigate these often-competing interests and provide strategies for achievable performance through design and specification, without compromising the aesthetics with distracting details, for commercial building wall systems. The impacts of whole-building performance, design requirements, material, and assembly requirements, and installation verification requirements during construction will be discussed.

Benjamin Meyer is the Building Enclosure Business Director with Siplast. Previous experience includes: enclosure consultant principal, technical management for enclosure products, architecture, real-estate development and construction management. Serves as ASHRAE 90.1 Envelope Chair and Full Voting Member, Director of ABAA, and past LEED Technical Committee Member.
