The Perfect Wall - An Affordable Solid Panel System

COURSE NO: A07-001
The Perfect Wall - An Affordable Solid Panel System
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents a novel building assembly called the Solid Panel Structure (SPS), which utilizes large format (8’x24’), oriented strand board (OSB) panels to create a wall structure that comprises of high-performance moisture and thermal control layers.


The SPS is an innovative interpretation of the “perfect wall” concept, in which environmental control layers are located on the exterior side of the structural components, as opposed to traditional cavity insulated, stud-framed walls. The primary objective of this course is to validate the SPS technology in terms of its constructability, cost, and performance.


This 7 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical, structural, civil, sustainability engineers, and architects; as well as contractors and others interested in learning more about the “perfect wall” system.
