Thermal Bridges:  Small details with a large impact on CFS

A webinar of the SFIA Forum for CFS industry outreach and Input
February 23, 2021
2:00 to 3:00 pm (EDT)

Most everyone in the construction industry is familiar with the International Building Code, but that is just one of the ICC codes and other governing documents that impact the design and construction of a cold-formed steel building.  Energy codes and standards such as ASHRAE 90.1 and the ICC’s International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) have been having an increasing impact on CFS over the past decade or more, mostly in how much and where insulation is placed with a given floor, roof, or wall assembly.  

Thermal bridges are the new frontier of energy conservation for building envelopes, requiring a jump from focusing on your assembly exclusively to how it interacts with other assemblies of the same and different materials.  The CFS industry will need to deliver solutions for building intersections as well as the traditional studs, joist, rafters, and trusses.

The way thermal bridging or any requirement makes its way into the codes is also evolving.  We are pleased to have Mr. Jay Crandell, PE to present from his experience working with the ICC and standards processes.  

Join us on February 23, 2021 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm (EDT) for this informative discussion.
