  • With the rise in popularity of green roofing, many municipalities are adopting requirements for sustainable design from LEED and other sources. As this creates an increased frequency, design professionals require an increased level of knowledge as to how to create green roofs within the framework of waterproofing, thermal envelope, elevation limits, and other complex issues. This program will provide the attendees with a solid background to solve these problems.

  • There are 3 modes of heat transfer: conductive, convective, & radiant. Radiant Heat Gain (RHG) accounts for significant increases in energy use and impacts building occupant comfort. The use of Radiant Heat Barriers in specific project types can reduce RHG by up to 80% or more improving building performance in both categories. This presentation will provide insight into the science and the solutions.
