The Minnick Test House

With the Minnick test House we offer a specially designed house in which to test our students. Specially created for testing, we believe that the Minnick Test House is an important component of building science education.
Among the features of the Minnick Test House for BPI certification:

Building Envelope

The Minnick Test House allows students the opportunity to test for their BPI Building Analyst and Envelope certifications here at Minnick. The building envelope (which consists of an air barrier and a thermal barrier)  is one of the most important components of an energy efficient building. It’s much easier to understand the building envelope in theory, but real-life buildings often include complications that can throw new building science students for a loop. The Test House allows students of Minnick to test inside a real-life envelope, without inconvenienceing a customer or client.

Combustion safety techniques are one of the key things in BPI training. In the Minnick Test House, students are given the opportunity to use real combustion equipment for safety and energy efficiency.
