  Effective Performance of the Building Enclosure - Exterior Walls


FREE

Description

Today, new buildings must meet the ASHRAE requirements for thermal performance. This is a tough objective, since documented proof is required. Effective R-values must be met, not just nominal values, which means that high conductivity materials that cause thermal bridges must be considered in the modelling and calculations.

Often, meeting ASHRAE’s challenging prescriptive compliance is not even enough; some designers look to walls to make up for thermal performance shortfalls from other parts of the building enclosure – such as high glazing area percentages. Many of today’s conventional wall assemblies fall short of even basic compliance, causing larger, thicker, and more costly assemblies than ever before.

Learn what current wall assemblies are getting closest to the target performance levels, what...

  More Than Just an R-Value: Acoustics in Commercial Buildings


FREE

Description

Commercial stone wool products can help to protect property, extend building life cycles and enhance occupant comfort, and are designed to make construction faster and easier. This course will identify what stone wool insulation is and how it is produced, and will discuss some introductory terminology and concepts as they relate to sound and acoustics in the building envelope. We will examine current codes and standards provisions for acoustics in the United States and finally, we will discuss techniques and considerations that can be used when designing exterior wall & roof assemblies and interior wall systems for sound acoustic performance.

  Understanding Advancing Wall System Design around Continuous Insulation


FREE

Description

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...

  Continuous Insulation vs. Cavity


FREE

Description

This course will review an in-depth breakdown of the current uses of insulation in wall assemblies. The attendees will learn more about the differences in the use of cavity insulation versus the use of continuous insulation installed on the exterior of the building sheathing. Discussion points to include the changes of the current energy codes and the requirements for the use of continuous insulation in the majority of future projects. The participant will be able to better evaluate their current wall assemblies and understand the requirements that are dictated by current codes.
