About the Presenter : Kevin Day, Dryvit Canada
Kevin Day is regarded as a leading expert on EIFS, and is widely recognized for his extensive cladding engineering experience. Kevin is also a popular public speaker, having traveled across North America to communicate best building practices .
Key contributions in the EIFS field include: articles such as Designing EIFS for a Predictable Service Life (2001), Practical Requirements for Rainscreen EIFS (2002), Chairman of ULC-S716 from 2000 â€“ 2007, member of steering committee for CMHC’s EIFS Best Practice Guide.
About the topic:
Did you know that EIFS has the lowest carbon footprint of any cladding on the market? Would you like to know why? Kevin Day of Dryvit Systems Canada will present the generic science and facts to support this claim, including highlights from:
- Benchmarking EIFS durability â€“ over 15 years of CCMC, now we have ULC standards governing over EIFS;
- Critical detailing considerations â€“ a summary of key performance considerations, impacting long term durability â€“ a consultative approach;
- The recent study by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, comparing EIFS to other claddings and other key research highlights; and
- Dr. Ted Kesik’s EIFS Value Propositions â€“ a summary report for the EIFS Council of Canada from 2012.
Kevin will also present selected case studies, demonstrating how EIFS achieves high performance, and will also compare other claddings to glass wall construction â€“ examining cost vs. performance.
