Mitigating Thermal Bridging in Steel Construction [N20]Current trends in energy codes are pushing the building construction industry towards greater energy efficiency. A big part of this shift is through reducing heat loss through the building envelope by minimizing thermal bridging. However, steel construction often dictates thermal bridging through the envelope due to structural requirements. There are a growing number of solutions, whether they are proprietary or on site approaches, that can help mitigate these heat loss impacts. In this session, we will discuss how thermal bridging impacts building energy performance in steel construction and how it can be mitigated, through cases and worked examples.
