Advancing Wall Systems
This session explores evolving trends in building enclosure technology, and the subsequent changes in energy efficient building design; with particular emphasis on the role of continuous exterior insulation (CI). The net energy savings to be realized in a properly insulated building are by now well understood, and these savings are increasingly being required in stringent local building and energy codes. Current building science research and field monitoring data will also be presented, demonstrating how the effective R values of various insulating materials will perform and change in differing regional climates, temperature ranges, and seasonal conditions. Strategies for designing and constructing highly insulated and cost effective wall assemblies by minimizing thermal bridging will also be discussed at length.
• Consider how recent changes in building and energy codes can and should influence your design strategy for producing whole building energy efficiency.
• Understand how proper material selection and good design for wall assemblies is critical for ensuring reliable long term energy efficient performance.
• Learn how newer cladding attachment systems are being utilized in the construction of highly insulated wall assemblies and how to apply these technologies to your projects.
• Gain a better understanding of how these systems are being installed in the field and the minimal changes to current construction practices.
