AIA Seattle CAP Series: Energy Efficient Design of Building Envelopes to Comply with the New Energy Code

December 8, 2016 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PST

Medgar Marceau, Senior Building Science Engineer, and Emile Wang, Building Science Consultant, will be jointly presenting Implications for the Energy Efficient Design of Building Envelopes to Comply with the New Energy Code as part of AIA Seattle’s 2016 Corporate Allied Partners (CAP) Collaboration Classes Series.

As Seattle continues to strive to become a net-zero energy city, the Seattle Energy Code requirements are becoming more stringent with each edition. While there is no denying there are benefits of stricter requirements, building designers are faced with challenges in constructing a more air-tight, energy-efficient building. In this presentation Morrison Hershfield will highlight specific changes in the 2015 Seattle Energy Codes, as well as review design considerations that would benefit the energy efficiency of the building envelope and mitigate risk of condensation.
