Building Smart with High Performance Concrete Envelopes
February 27, 2018 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm$500
The 2018 BCBEC – BC Housing half-day workshop Building Smart with High Performance Concrete Envelopes will be taking place in Vancouver on February 27, 2018 at the Italian Cultural Centre.
This half-day workshop will focus on concrete envelopes for Part 9 and Part 3 construction. Energy and thermal requirements play an increasingly important role in residential construction. Industry experts will discuss the latest research on how concrete envelopes can help deliver results as well as some of the most effective ways to meet the new BC Energy Step Code standards. Topics for discussion include precast concrete, sandwich concrete walls, insulating concrete forms, and cast-in-place concrete. The workshop program will provide practical examples to illustrate thermal bridging considerations and to identify compliance paths for meeting the thermal performance requirements.
The trade show portion of the event will be held the same morning and will feature 16 booths.
Registration for attendees is open and we expect about 300 participants, including building envelope engineers, designers, technologists, residential builders, warranty providers, building officials, researchers and others. The event is eligible for professional learning credits.
