An Afternoon with Terry Brennan and Stephen McNeil

Terry Brennan literally wrote the book on moisture control. He is a lead author of a landmark 2013 Environmental Protection Agency book titled “Moisture Control for Building Design, Construction and Maintenance” which has since become a standard reference document for building industry in the US.

Join us for this opportunity to hear a world leading expert share the six key points for best practice planning, design and operation of healthy, comfortable buildings.
