Course outline

Through a combination of case studies and sound technical information, this seminar considers how the building envelope needs to deal with water in its various forms and how considered design and detailing can minimise and prevent damage. This course is based on Andy Russell's National Seminar Series 2011 presentation.

AACA Competency: Design and Documentation


Andy Russell: Proctor Group Australia

Andy Russell has worked in the field of condensation in Europe, Japan and Australia for almost ten years.
