Boston, MA

is the Building Technology Region Head for Simpson Gumpertz & Heger’s East Coast Operations. He has extensive experience in the design, investigation, and repair of walls, roofs, glass curtain walls, and windows. He led the Building Science Practice group at SGH for ten years, specializing
in heat, air and moisture migration analysis in the building enclosure, with a focus on performance issues in high-humidity buildings. Vince has lectured as an adjunct professor at the School of Architecture, McGill University and as a visiting lecturer at the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning, MIT

DESCRIPTION: This presentation will address the unique challenges of renovating masonry walls for humidified buildings, with emphasis on controlling condensation and maintaining steady temperature and relative humidity at the interior wall surface. Specialized “dynamic wall systems” that couple the building enclosure with the mechanical system as a means of thermal and moisture control will be discussed as an option for preserving the masonry enclosure while providing a suitable environment for art storage and display. Practical examples of the implementation of these systems will be presented.
