SIGA Training Workshop: February 27th
Join us this month for a comprehensive training on Zehnder products and installation. Learn how to implement Zehnder's premier heat recovery ventilations (HRV) into your building projects. Whole-house, balanced HRV systems are growing in both acceptance and ppularity, especially with new challenges presented by tighter, better-insulated dwellings. Thus, the need for trained and knowledgeable installers and commissioning agents is growing, and will continue to grow. This one-day course will provide participants with a background in HRV technology, and will teach participants the skills needed to properly install these systems. to create a more comfortable living environment - while saving energy and money. Further details and specific times coming soon!

The Three Elements for Successful Airtightness: Planning, Application and Quality
This three-hour workshop will cover examples of current American and European building assemblies, how to tackle problems of moisture management, creating an envelope on site, and closing with the blower door test. This workshop is both discussion and "hands on". We'll use SIGA Membranes and Adhesive Tapes on model houses to understand the planning and application of an system that creates an air-tight envelope, manages both interior and exterior moisture and seals the construction from pest infiltration.
This years round of workshops will be taught by new SIGA Trainers Les Robertson and Patrick McMahon. Les and Patrick have just returned from their 5 week visit at SIGA headquarters in Switzerland. In their new roles as trainers and advisors they will be helping our industry make great strides in understanding air-sealing and moisture management; leading to better, more comfortable and durable buildings.
SIGA veteran Michael Brogle of SIGA Switzerland will remain in the US and assist the new advisors in their efforts. Michael travels to us from Switzerland in his new position as Business Development Manager for North America. His goals for the workshops are to both teach the European Air Sealing Method as well as learn more about US Construction methods to better develop products and strategies for the US.
