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.
