2023 will usher in an unprecedented year for energy-efficient buildings. If you are a building owner or developer, you may be considering constructing or retrofitting your building with efficient materials. If you are a code official, you are likely to be inspecting buildings constructed with different materials and systems. And if you are involved in any aspect of building fire safety, you probably have questions about the safety of these efficient building materials. Building materials have long been studied to learn about their impacts on building durability. But only recently have the materials and systems been examined to look at fire performance as well. Learn about the efficient construction materials and systems we are most likely to see what it
You can expect to hear and discuss:
– Types of efficient building materials including spray foam and structurally insulated panels (SIPs).
– How to use a free website that provides expert advice on building envelope system performance.
– Available pre-assessment tool to save time and money on projects by helping to review existing health and safety conditions.
– Initial evaluation of the fire performance of selected efficient building systems.
