    Building Science Training
    Analyzing homes is lot like being an investigator of a mystery. Each one is different. Each one tells a different tale. Each one has a history. Homes can last for hundreds of years - something that many of us forget. The occupants can tell you some or all of the history depending on how long they have lived in the home and how recently it was built. The building envelope is the shell that protects the occupants, shelters them from the weather, and should keep them comfortable and healthy. The fundamentals of building science are universal and can be learned. The details of each home makes them individual and adds to the experience and wisdom that can only be gained with time.

Comments from students:

Paul is an exceptionally qualified teacher, and an excellent choice for leading this new BPI training initiative. He sets a high standard and example for the students.” A.P. Truro, MA

“I would like to thank you for allowing me to take both the Building Performance Institutes Analyst and Envelope Courses. I have worked in the trades for most of the last forty years. I am a self-employed building contractor. Like many, I have felt the effects of the economic recession and realize the need to expand my skills. These classes were opportunities to learn how to evaluate buildings in terms of their being considered a system. The improvement of energy use and the quality of the air and comfortability were considered. There is a need to retrofit homes to make best use of energy supplies. This is obvious given the economic and political costs of energy. I hope to take advantage of this training to help myself economically and my community. I had not been in an academic setting for quite sometime. It was as much like college as I remembered it. Paul Raymer was a very good instructor. His depth of subject knowledge and enthusiasm for teaching made this a real learning experience for me. Thank you so much for making this available to me.” M.M. Marstons Mills, MA

“Thank you for the opportunity to be apart of this amazing class. Paul Raymer was extremely knowledgeable on all things building performance related. I highly recommend this class for weatherization contractors, auditors and builders. ” J.S. Hyannis, MA
