More and more jurisdictions are implementing Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS) to help address the poor energy efficiency of buildings—a key contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and overall energy consumption.  While this evolution offers benefits—such as design flexibility and lower operating costs—it also requires a new approach to building those assemblies.

A line-item-by-line-item approach no longer yields the best results. Instead, component performance needs to be viewed across multiple facets to build high-performance exterior wall assemblies. This presentation discusses the impacts of thermal bridging on compliance with emerging building energy performance standards (BEPS), as well as ASHRAE.  Reviewing common insulation solutions—including interior, split and exterior insulation methods—the session delves into strategies for limiting thermal bridging through various cladding attachments. Finally, a review of real-world case studies helps demonstrate the interconnectivity of component when achieving high-performance.

This presentation explores a more comprehensive and integrated approach to envelope and fenestration energy performance, with a focus on ways to cost-optimize energy-efficiency at a whole-building scale.

Through a review of the BC Step Code & the Seattle Energy Code-2018, this presentation will demonstrate how a ‘building-envelope-first’ design approach can help meet emerging BEPS as well as offset costs associated with high-performance materials.
