Learning Objectives

1. Understand the building enclosure design requirements for wall assemblies and how the selection of the right materials are critical to reliable long-term performance

2. Understand how these new systems are installed in the field with minimal changes to current construction practices

3. Review and understand recent changes to local building and energy codes that impact building enclosure design strategies and whole building energy efficiency.

4. Learn about several emerging design strategies including various cladding attachment systems are being used for the construction of highly insulated wall assemblies and how to apply these technologies to projects.

Understanding Advanced Wall System Design around Continuous Insulation


This one hour educational session will cover the latest in building enclosure technology for energy efficient buildings. Presented by one of North America's leading manufacturers of insulation, this course will provide an in-depth discussion of emerging wall that provide durable, cost effective and thermally efficient performance. Recent building and energy code changes will be reviewed including an opportunity to discuss solutions to meet these more stringent requirements. Current building science research and field monitoring information will be presented, demonstrating how insulation materials perform under different climatic conditions and how R-values change with time and season. Strategies to construct highly insulated wall assemblies and avoid thermal bridging will be presented, The seminar will cover all building types and construction materials, with a few highlights and lessons learned from building science researchers
