Building Smart with Insulating Walls and Roofs
April 29, 2019
BC Housing is offering this 3-hour webinar in which the workshop addresses topical design and construction issues to provide participants with the answers they need to build to increasingly rigorous energy efficiency standards.
When: May 16, 2019
Time: 9am – 12pm
Location: Available online via a webinar, or in person at Brix Studio, 211 Columbia St #102 Vancouver BC V6A 2R5
CPD points: 3 (Group A)
How do you attach cladding over exterior insulation? Do unvented roofs work? Is spray foam the solution?
Join the authors of BC Housing’s guide to R22+ effective walls and guide to R30+ effective roofs for this Building Smart seminar where attendees will learn about how to insulate wood-frame walls and roofs.
Presenters will discuss methods for building higher R-value assemblies to provide participants with the information necessary to meet increasingly stringent energy code requirements. The presentation will focus on wood-frame assemblies for low-rise detached and semi-detached homes, row-houses/townhomes, and multi-unit residential buildings up to six storeys.
This event is being held in collaboration with Building and Safety Standards Branch, RCABC, City of Vancouver, City of New Westminster, City of North Vancouver, Canadian Wood Council, AIBC, ASTTBC, and CHBA BC.
