Course Description


This one-hour interactive distance-learning course is designed to introduce the participant to the Department of Energy’s Buildings Office of Building Technology, State and Community Programs (BTS) Advanced Wall Framing - Buildings for the 21st Century. Advanced house framing, sometimes called Optimum Value Engineering (OVE), refers to a variety of techniques designed to reduce the amount of lumber used and waste generated in the construction of a wood-framed house. These techniques also improve a home's energy efficiency.
In the next hour we’ll review how advanced framing actually replaces lumber with insulation material and maximizes the wall that's insulated, which improves the whole-wall thermal resistance or R-value.



Course Objectives


At the conclusion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify considerations for the use of advanced framing design
  • Explain techniques used in advanced framing design
  • Discuss properties of various materials used in advanced framing
  • Describe methods and concepts of advanced framing
  • Recognize practices that will improve wall design
