At the 2013 BuildingEnergy Conference in Boston on March 5th, the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA) is hosting a workshop entitled Structural Detailing for Energy Efficient Building Envelopes. Russ Miller-Johnson and I will be co-facilitating.
This will be a three-hour, hands-on opportunity to learn strategies to mitigate thermal bridging of structural elements in buildings. We’ll also give participants a chance to bring their favorite (or worst) details of thermal bridging to the workshop, to get help with developing a way to modify the detail to reduce thermal bridging, or to bring a detail showing their favorite solution to a thermal bridging problem that they have developed.
On 24 October I spent the evening with about 30 members of the Structural Engineers Association of Metropolitan Washington (SEAMW). They had a dinner meeting at Maggiano’s Chevy Chase, and invited me to present on my favorite topic – thermal bridging.
