Energy and Thermal Performance Requirements Play an Increasingly Significant Role in Building Codes

The presentation is intended to assist designers and owners make better comparisons between systems at the early stage of design (when many irrevocable decisions are made).

Details that increase thermal bridging, such as parapets, balconies, base transitions, window installation and other project specific conditions will be addressed. The influence of dynamic thermal mass, which can only properly be assessed using computer programs for a specific building location, design, and occupancy will also be addressed
