Evolving energy codes and low-energy standards like passive house demand greater thermal performance from our building enclosures. To achieve high performance envelope in practice, designers will need to recognize and quantify the impacts of thermal bridging across the entirety of the building enclosure. Neil Norris, MASc, P.Eng, CPHD, Façade Thermal Performance Specialist at Morrison Hershfield, will demonstrate a practical approach for incorporating thermal bridging calculations into projects and additional resources for designers to better understand thermal bridging and how to optimize their envelope designs.
Speaker: Neil Norris specializes in the research and evaluation of the thermal performance of the building envelope and applying that knowledge on new construction projects. Neil has developed numerous performance calculation tools and component modelling data for industry use and has worked with numerous project teams and manufacturers to better understand and mitigate thermal bridging in their designs. This includes the Building Envelope Thermal Bridging Guide, the Guide to Low Thermal Energy Demand in Buildings, and numerous other publications and tools. Neil’s research on thermal bridging has been incorporated into numerous low-energy standards and the ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals.
- BEC Chicago members will receive an invite with registration link approximately 7 to 10 days in advance of event.
- Non-members should contact Jeff Diqui at email@example.com to request an invite.

DesignBuildBLUFF is a graduate architecture program at the University of Utah focused on immersing students in hands-on cross-cultural experiences. The prgram works in partnership with the rural and Native American communities of San Juan County in the Found Corners region of Utah. Hiroko Yamamoto, Coordinator, Instructor, Technical Lead for DesignBuildBLUFF, a University of Utah program, will focus on COVID-19’s impact on practice, sustainability, and equity, and these issues have been addressed through sweat equity design-build projects.
At the conclusion of each seminar, there will be a 30-minute discussion with Platinum Sponsor Andersen Windows & Doors about how they are implementing COVID-19 safety, sustainability, and social justice. This discussion does not include AIAU learning units.
