Live LAB Events

Learning About Building Science (LAB) Events begin as live (and often lively!) monthly events hosted by RDH Building Science Laboratories. LAB Events are training and networking opportunities intended for architects, engineers, and anyone interested in building science. They are interactive and casual – our goal is to take high-quality research and building science principles and make them fun!

We hold LAB Events at our laboratory in Waterloo, Ontario, and webcast them live for those outside the local area. You can find the links to register below. Recordings of popular and important presentations can be found in our on-demand LAB Events courses. If you’ve attended a recent LAB Event and are looking for the slides, a link will be sent by email.

Details about continuing education credits are available on event registration pages.
