The Best B.S. Website

Each month we publish a newsletter titled IAQ Website of the Month.  The excerpt below was originally published in the May 2010 newsletter.

Joe Lstiburek is a name that is synonymous with B.S. (building science, of course). If you have seen him speak or have read his articles in the ASHRAE Journal, you’ll agree that he is both peerless and fearless.

Joe is a principal at Building Science Corporation, a company that maintains the best building science website on the internet. What’s it all about? Here’s the description on the website

“building provides objective, high-quality information about buildings. This resource combines building physics, systems design concepts, and an awareness of sustainability to promote the design and construction of buildings that are more durable, healthier, more sustainable and more economical than most buildings built today.”

The are innumerable resources divided into digests, insights, primers, reports, case studies, and more. I recommend setting aside an afternoon to read through all the free materials.

Here are some of my favorites:

If you need more irreverent commentary on the built environment, attend a Building Science Corporation seminar or purchase one of their excellent publications.
