BEC-Baltimore: Building Tomorrow’s Buildings Today
September 15, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
1 AIA/CES LU Available
6:30pm registration & networking
7:00-8:00pm Graham Finch presentation, followed by Q&A
This AIA accredited educational session will cover the latest in building enclosure technology for energy efficient buildings. Presented by one of North America’s leading building science research engineers,Graham Finch of RDH Building Sciences will provide an overview of emerging wall and roof assemblies that provide durable, cost effective and thermally efficient performance.
Recent energy code changes will be reviewed including an opportunity to discuss solutions to meet these more stringent requirements. Recent 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 and roof assemblies and avoid thermal bridging will be presented, along with several case studies to illustrate how these emerging technologies have been utilized in new and existing buildings.
