Synopsis: This full day session covered the latest in building enclosure technology for building in the Pacific Northwest. Presented by one of North America's leading building science research engineers, Graham Finch of ROH Building Sciences will provide an overview of emerging wall and roof assemblies that provide durable, cost effective and energy 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.
