Structural Engineers in DC Learn About Thermal Bridgingfrom Jim D Aloisio
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.
Entitled “Efficient Building Structures And Thermal Bridging,” the presentation covered the basics of thermal bridging, then offered a review of different thermal bridge mitigation strategies, including Manufactured Structural Thermal Break Assemblies.
Although several people in the audience had some familiarity with the products, most of the audience was fairly new to the topic.
There was good food, good questions, good dialogue, and a good introduction and overview of thermal bridging problems and solutions.
Thank you to Schock, for sponsoring the event!
