Presented by the British Columbia Building Envelope Council (BCBEC) and BC Housing
This half-day workshop focused on concrete envelopes for Part 9 and Part 3 construction. Energy and thermal requirements play an increasingly important role in residential construction. Industry experts discussed the latest research on how concrete envelopes can help deliver results as well as some of the most effective ways to meet the new BC Energy Step Code standards. Topics for discussion included precast concrete, sandwich concrete walls, insulating concrete forms, and cast-in-place concrete. The workshop program provided practical examples to illustrate thermal bridging considerations and to identify compliance paths for meeting the thermal performance requirements.
