Continuous Insulation - Spray Polyurethane Foam vs. Rigid Foam Board

The design of exterior wall assemblies has become increasingly focused on performance for greater energy efficiency and resistance to air and water penetration. The 2015 International Energy Conservation Code and ASHRAE 90.1 now requires insulation that is continuous in wall assemblies, (i.e. not interrupted by studs, framing, etc.) in all eight climate zones within the United States. This push for continuous insulation in exterior wall assemblies is also reflected in green building standards and the desires of building owners to reduce energy costs.

In this presentation, we will look at the performance, installation and cost advantages of medium density spray foam insulation compared to the commonly used rigid foam board in continuous insulation applications.

Daylighting Inside and Out: Unconventional Ways to Bring More Natural Light Into and Throughout a Building

Exposure to natural light is beneficial for building occupants on many levels. We all know it intuitively and we feel better in interior spaces with natural light. Plus, studies conclusively demonstrate measurable benefits for health, moods, learning, and productivity.
The time-honored method for allowing natural light into a building is, of course, through windows. However, there are many more strategies for bringing natural light into and throughout a building. This course explores the sometimes-overlooked strategies for the flow of natural light into and throughout a building, including light tubes in closets, French doors in interiors, natural-light-flooded stairwells, sliding glass walls, and more.
