Thermal Bridging and Building Facades

Ivan Lee, a Building Science Consultant at Morrison Hershfield, recognizes the importance of mitigating thermal bridging to meet low energy targets for buildings. He points out that many jurisdictions are starting to incorporate thermal bridging into their codes and standards, and both ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC will likely include thermal bridging requirements in their next update cycles. It is time for designers to pay more attention to thermal bridging in façade design.
