Addressing Thermal Bridging and Code Compliance For a Typical Commercial Building
High-performance building standards and new energy efficiency code updates are driving more projects to consider Target Performance paths set by provincial regulators . The prescribed EUI targets and monitoring requirements are placing thermal bridging and its impact on whole-building energy performance in the spotlight. This webinar highlights the latest thermal bridging research and resources related to whole-building energy performance: what thermal bridges are; how and where they occur; and, how they can be mitigated. Designers, contractors and building owners can expect to learn how thermal bridging impacts a building’s overall energy use and the importance of determining accurate values of thermal transmittance.
