His experience includes projects of all sizes; ranging from small retrofits to large commercial projects. Since joining EA in 2013 Darren has worked on numerous projects, naming Shannon Estates and Nanaimo Library among his favourites.

 

About the Topic:  
Facade Design For Effective Thermal Performance Addressing New Code Requirements & Options To Meet ASHRAE 90.1

An industry dilemma was created when building codes changed. Attaining sustainable results through traditional resources is difficult and misguided. The building code changes specify higher R Values, replacing R Value with effective R Value. To attain an effective R value one must consider the effects of thermal bridges of studs, girts, window frames, etc. This presentation will provide an understanding of ASHRAE 90.1, the importance of an effective R value, how to reach it and how to design with thermally broken facades.

About the Topic:  
Roof Membrane Substrates: Their Impact on Roof Membrane Performance and Building Envelope Technology

A discussion on roof insulation in sustainable building envelope design and the role lightweight insulating concretes systems contribute to that concept. The specific topics of energy efficiency, sustainability and environmental responsibility will be discussed. Also included in the presentation:

  1. Engineering design properties such as composite construction, acoustics, fire resistant construction, wind uplift and thermal properties for roof membrane substrates.

  2. The history of LWIC.

  3. Different types of roof insulation and component characteristics.

  4. Mass effect of insulations and LWIC.

  5. American Concrete Institute guidelines for LWIC.

  6. Sustainability of roof insulation systems and performance characteristics.

  7. Structural lightweight concrete issues in roofing applications.
