Fall21: Addressing Thermal Bridging and Code Compliance for a Typical Commercial Building
This session 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.
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
