Event Description

10.15am - 11.15am

David and Graham

Roofing Industries

Talk topic: Understand how a warm roof system meets the updated H1 requirements for Commercial roofs in New Zealand

Learning outcome:

  • Structural Design: Learn how RoofLogic roof systems are engineered to meet both positive and negative wind, snow, and seismic design loads, and how these requirements are addressed through the provision of a full project-specific structural design.
  • Condensation Prevention and Structural Protection: Understand how positioning insulation above the LinerDeck and incorporating a Vapour Control Layer in a warm roof design prevents condensation. Additionally, understand the importance of hygrothermal analysis in mitigating condensation risk and addressing potential issues such as mould and corrosion within the roof assembly, thereby protecting the roof structure from damage. When required, separable system components allow for easier roof replacement without disrupting building occupancy.
  • Acoustic Performance: Understand how STC (Rw) and L(ia) relate to the acoustic performance of a roof assembly and how this data serves as a basis for comparing different roof assemblies and calculating internal noise levels caused by external sounds.
  • Programme and Health and Safety Benefits: Learn about the programme benefits of RoofLogic warm roofs, such as early close-in of the structure and protection of the building interior from weather, which offer significant health and safety advantages.
  • Energy Efficiency and Thermal Performance: Understand how a warm roof system meets the updated H1 requirements for Commercial roofs in New Zealand and how RoofLogic roofs meet all exposure zones.

11.15am - 12.15pm

Richard Hollard

Pro Clima NZ

Talk topic: Airtightness and vapour control within the building envelope:

In this presentation, we will talk about:

  • What is airtightness?
  • Why it's important to consider when designing & building
  • What products can be used for airtightness?
  • Airtightness & ventilation, what is the relationship?
  • What are the airtightness targets for Homestar, Passive House, and building codes around the world?

Learning objectives:

  • Dispel some of the myths about airtightness and building 'breathability'
  • Gain a better understanding of how airtightness, together with insulation and ventilation, creates a healthy environment for us to live, learn, work, and play in.
