Mitigating Thermal Bridging Through The Building Envelope
As energy codes evolve to demand greater thermal performance from our building envelopes, designers will need to recognize and quantify the impacts of thermal bridging from their assemblies in order to meet performance targets. Through this webinar, Morrison Hershfield will demonstrate a comprehensive approach to assessing envelope thermal performance that will allow designers to better understand thermal bridging and how to optimize their envelope designs.
• The basics of heat flow through the opaque envelope.
• Calculation procedures for assessing overall building envelope thermal performance that includes thermal bridging.
• Thermal bridging mitigation strategies for improving overall building envelope thermal performance.
• Tools and resources for supporting calculations for building envelope thermal performance.
