B.C. Thermal Bridging Guide released
October 15, 2014 - The Thermal Bridging Guide intends to help British Columbia’s building industry address the impact of thermal bridging to reduce energy use. Co-funded by BC Hydro Power Smart, the Canadian Wood Council, Fortis BC, FPInnovations and the Homeowner Protection Office, it provides information relevant to B.C.’s climate, building industry and regulatory environment for builders, designers, energy modellers and those involved in setting energy standards and policy. The guide also provides a catalogue of thermal performance of various envelope assemblies and interface details, while evaluating cost effectiveness of improving the building envelope through different methods, building types and climates.
