Technical Series: Building Enclosures / Designing for Energy Efficiency

08 May 2018

Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Location: IBI Group, Multipurpose Room
55 St. Clair Avenue West

The 2018 TSA Technical Series continues with a presentation by ROCKWOOL!

The energy and resource use in buildings today represents a large part of our collective impact on the environment. This impact can be mitigated through design and construction using well-known techniques and existing technologies. This presentation will provide an overview of building envelopes and low-tech, high-impact techniques for buildings that are more comfortable, durable, and energy efficient. The presenter will speak about heat loss through the building envelope; the definition of high performance buildings and how they relate to energy code SB-10; the definition of the perfect wall concept; and a building science informed approach to the design and construction of high performance building enclosures.

Eligible for two OAA ConEd Structured Learning hours.
