Cold storage buildings are often thought of as a typical building turned inside out. These buildings are designed to keep heat out, instead of keeping heat in during cold weather. But is it that simple? We will review the importance of unique construction assemblies, the primary control layers, and how we need to think about them in this inside out scenario to reduce the risk of condensation.
- Discuss the risks associated with common cold storage design and installation practices.
- Review the importance of air, vapor, and thermal control layer continuity.
- Assess typical cold storage details to evaluate control layer continuity.
- Review common installation and detailing errors during construction.
