Morrison Hershfield: Building Envelope Workshop

The administration and enforcement of building codes, energy codes, and energy conservation incentive programs are in state of change, demanding a more stringent and rigorous evaluation of building enclosure thermal performance. There has been an explosion of research about how the effective thermal resistance of enclosure assemblies is impacted by thermal bridging and consequently, energy use in buildings. However, the recent increase in information has not yet been absorbed into common energy modeling practice, leaving concerns about the appropriateness of energy code compliance. This workshop will describe the roles and responsibilities of key project team members in the energy modeling process, and present a clear interpretation of the codes as it relates to building envelope performance. The workshop takes place on January 23, 2014, at 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., located at the BC Hydro Edmonds Building (next to Edmonds skytrain station) on the Main Floor, 6911 Southpoint Drive, Burnaby (Meeting Room: Edmonds, Auditorium Centre).  Limited space is available and by invitation only. Please confirm your registration for this event by email to alliance@bchydro.com by January 17, 2013.
