Building Enclosures: Continuous Exterior Insulation, Thermal Continuity, and High R-Value Walls

Many nonresidential storefront and curtainwall enclosing walls have R-values between two and four, no better than 125 year old, uninsulated mass wall enclosures. As the State of California targets zero net energy and energy codes become more stringent, designers and builders need to understand how to design, detail, and construct high thermal performance enclosures. Building science expert John Straube will cover important concepts and detailing approaches for true high R-value enclosures, especially the important benefits of continuous insulation. He will discuss in detail how to employ continuous exterior insulation, minimize thermal bridging, and attach the (enclosing) exterior skin with minimal reduction in air, water, and thermal performance.
