Description

Please join us at Iron Works Restaurant for a presentation offered FREE of charge by National Grid on techniques and materials that architects, design engineers and builders can use to help meet the current residential energy code and result in high performance building envelopes.

  • The State of Rhode Island has updating and adopted new energy conservation codes for both residential and commercial new construction, renovations, and repairs. These new codes will be based upon 2015 IECC and has gone into effect as of August 1st, 2019.

Continuing Education hours will be available for Building Officials, Contractor, AIA and BPI

This event will include complimentary cocktail hour sponsored by: National Building Products and Pro Insulators

Introduction to Building Science - An overview of the fundamental principles of energy and moisture transfer, and how homes are designed and built to control them. We will focus on the building enclosure in residential remodel/renovation and new construction projects. Participants will learn about best practice strategies for building assemblies, from foundations through roofs. Using case studies, exercises, and discussion we will show proven methods that have enabled builders and designers to build cost effective high-performance homes

Zero Ready Energy Homes - Explore basic design considerations required to achieve low energy use homes. We will also identify construction techniques and best practices that are critical to achieve high-performance buildings, and provide an understanding of the certification process and the role of consultants, standards, and verification
