BC Building Envelope Council Conference & AGM: Drainage Capabilities & Heat Loss of Different Roof Assemblies

September 14, 2016 at 7:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT

Matthew Pel, Building Science Consultant, will¬†be presenting Drainage Capabilities¬†and Heat Loss of Different Inverted Roof Assemblies at this year’s BC Building Envelope Council Conference & Annual General Meeting.

Energy use in buildings throughout BC and Canada has attracted significant attention over the past decade. In BC, rainwater management is a critical aspect of designing a durable and energy efficient building envelope. This HPO funded presentation will provide an overview of the research completed by Morrison Hershfield relating to different drainage scenarios for inverted roofs and the associated heat loss for the different drainage. Items evaluated during this project include:

  • Testing instruments and equipment
  • Heat flux through the different inverted roof assemblies
  • Leakage rates in terms of water drainage a the surface of the insulation and the membrane level
