NESEA’s Renewal Energy and High-Performance Building Conference

from Alexander Krenczik

On March 5-7, Schӧck discovered what is known as the “Northeast’s most established, most cross-disciplinary renewable energy and high-performance building conference and trade show,” NESEA’s BuildingEnergy 2013.

With over 80 learning sessions and workshops on renewable energy and green buildings, thermal bridging was at center stage at the Boston, MA event.


We had a influx of interest in our thermal break solutions, with our floor models and various product samples to show the wide range of applications of Isokorb. In addition to our Concrete and Steel beam solutions, there was a great interest in the Isokorb solutions for Passive house, as well as solutions for our concrete to steel beam connection,  parapets, step-down balconies, and corbels for brick facing support.

Visitors were impressed by the various solutions available for thermal breaks. Since Schӧck has been developing Isokorb for over 20 years, we have already found the solutions, tested in the field and made many advancements. Plus, we already have more than twenty references in the USA and Canada, which was important for our booth visitors to see.

Russ Miller Johnson, and Jim D’Aloisio presented their workshop on  Structural Detailing for Energy Efficient Building Envelopes, exploring the details of thermal bridges with an audience of architect, engineers envelope and energy experts. At the end of the seminar participants could draw details where they got trouble with thermal bridging issues which were answered and solved by the two experts thereafter.

In the picture below you see Dr. John Straube from University Waterloo visiting our booth.


BuildingEnergy 2013 was a success with valued interaction and inquiries.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2014.
