Exterior Continuous Insulated Claddings for Energy Efficiency and Architectural Diversity
1 AIA HSW CE Hour | AIA Course #: BL0002
1 GBCI CE Hour for LEED Professionals | GBCI Course ID: 0090005704
AIA Provider: Dryvit System, Inc.
Presenter: Bob Dazel, AIA, LEED GA
Deconstruct the "perceived" value of traditional insulation methods and reduced performance within
framed wall assemblies and reconstruct new strategies for developing true "effective" insulation value and high performance. Identify and define model energy code and green design standard's requirements for exterior continuous insulation.
Differentiate between "prescriptive"  R-value "performance"  U-factor wall design paths and recognize
where continuous insulation must be integrated.
Discover the interrelationship between exterior insulated cladding and the use of continuous insulation to achieve energy efficient, cost effective and aesthetically pleasing design solutions.
