Understanding Stone Wool (Mineral Wool) in Interior and Exterior Applications -Solutions for Thermal, Fire, and Sound Control Register Here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/product-showcase-understanding-stone-wool-mineral-wool-solutions-tickets-110127422084 About this Event Program Overview: The net energy savings realized in a properly insulated building are well understood. However, as design professionals strive to maximize thermal resistance, yet reduce mass in the wall assembly, insulation is increasingly being positioned in both the stud wall and the exterior side of the building envelope. This split insulation concept has introduced a number of design issues and concerns; particularly as relates to fire resistance, moisture management, and wall drying rates. This program focuses on the unique properties of stone wool insulation, and suggests how it can improve thermal, fire, water and sound suppression performance in a well detailed wall assembly. Learning Objectives: Define and explain what stone wool insulation is and how it is manufactured. Identify the differences between stone wool, glass fiber, and foam insulations. Explain the key features and value added benefits of stone wool. Discuss the ecologically sustainable aspects of stone wool. Illustrate applications for stone wool in commercial buildings and low slope roofing. Comment on Code Changes to IBC Chapter 26 and testing standards for NFPA 285.

Our next event features a presentation by Jonathan Holmes, member of the Passive House Institute New Zealand and owner of New Zealand’s first Certified Passive House Premium building (and only the second in Australasia and 15th world-wide); discussing the design and construction process of his home. Design Journey to PH Premium - A Client's Perspective This presentation will discuss the client journey planning, designing and building the first Passive House Premium home in New Zealand. Along the way, the client discovers what being an architect entails, becomes a Passive House Consultant and moves into their new home. This talk is opportunity to learn about the design/build process from the client's perspective with all the highs and lows, what went well and what they learnt for the next Passive House Project. Find out more about the project at our iPHA community meet up!
