The Advantages of Continuous Insulation
in Steel Stud Construction
AIA Program #: R012012
Length of program: 1 hour
Learning units: 1 LU Hour, HSW & SD, AIA and GBCI/CMP
To educate about what ‘Sustainability’ means and how it is measured, what are the factors involved with ‘Building Longevity’ and how these concepts impact making buildings more energy efficient. We will also examine how much energy buildings use from an individual approach to the overall bigger picture. By reviewing codes and standards, that are currently in effect, will give us direction on how much Polyisocyanurate insulation is needed in steel stud design to meet these requirements.
2. Learn about the Science Behind Thermal, Air & Moisture Control for Steel Stud Construction.
3. Interpret the Code Requirements for Building Envelope Design and Performance.
4. Discover How Polyiso Meets Requirements and Outperforms Traditional Methods for Optimum Control.
5. Examine How Professionals are Looking to a Better Future.
