Join us at 6pm for drinks and appetizers, followed by an AIA registered course on thermal bridging.
This course presents strategies for creating a high performance building envelope with thermal breaks, which contributes to Passive House building standards and other green building certifications for your projects.
Register Now via Schoeck to reserve a spot.
RSVP on NYPH meetup just to let other know you are going.
Balconies and other cantilever construction elements, which project through the building envelope break the insulation layer and create thermal bridges. Incorporating a thermal break within structural elements significantly improves the thermal performance of building envelopes. This course discusses solutions to separate the external components from the building envelope, minimizing thermal bridging, energy loss and moisture issues.
Attendees learn to save significant time and resources through thermal break innovations. Structural design components for balconies provide a load-bearing insulation element, ensure fatigue-proof construction, and allow freedom of design.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
Identify thermal bridge problems such as energy loss and mold growth in design stagesCompare advantages vs. disadvantages of thermal break solutionsIntegrate thermal break technology to use energy sensibly, and create buildings that are comfortableSite reference projects where thermal break technology has been utilized
Course length: 1 hour
Learning Units: 1 LU, HSW
