Using Polyisocyanurate Insulation in Concrete and CMU Mass Wall Design!
This presentation examines how much energy buildings use from an individual approach to the overall bigger picture. We’ll review codes and standards that are currently in effect and soon to be going into effect. We’ll discuss integrated design, building envelope performance, climate zones, R-Value requirements and continuous insulation. We’ll discuss reasons and incentives for going beyond the code as well as supporting organizations and programs. We’ll discuss meeting the continuous insulation requirements and the benefits of using polyiso, e.g. physical properties, fire resistance and specifying.
