This lecture will be targeted towards professionals in the green building industry, and is the second in a two-part series. This two part series will discuss important design considerations that apply to high performance building envelopes.  From foundations to roof assemblies, this series will discuss the importance of eliminating thermal bridging and achieving a continuous insulation layer and air barrier, highlighting important areas for both design and structural detailing. With unique experience building and designing with various systems, we will discuss the pros and cons of various insulation and framing systems, highlighting local case study examples.

For our second session, we will explore in more detail and case study format the challenges of detailing passive house envelopes in terms of different soils conditions, common thermal bridges, European passive house window detailing, and quality control and quality assurance in passive house envelope performance.  The key concepts described in the presentation will include understanding of various high performance floor, wall/window and roof systems and their successful application in construction.  

Our speakers will be Brian Fuentes, AIA, CPHC and Megan Monroe, M.S., of fuentesdesign.
