AIA Atlanta: Learn Over Lunch - Understanding Advanced Wall System Design Around Continuous Insulation
Program Overview:
This session explores evolving trends in building enclosure technology, and subsequent changes in energy
efficient building design; with especial focus on the role of continuous exterior insulation (CI). The net
energy savings realized in a properly insulated building are by now well understood, and these savings are
increasingly being required by stringent local building and energy codes. Current building science research
and field monitoring data will be presented, to demonstrate how the effective R value of various insulating
materials perform and change in differing regional climates, temperature ranges, and seasonal conditions.
Strategies for designing and constructing highly insulated and cost effective wall assemblies while still
minimizing thermal bridging are also discussed.

Learning Objectives:
 Consider how recent changes in building and energy codes can and should influence your design strategy for producing
whole building energy efficiency.
 Understand how proper material selection and good design for wall assemblies is critical for ensuring reliable long term
energy efficient performance.
 Learn how newer cladding attachment systems are being utilized in the construction of highly insulated wall assemblies and
how to apply these technologies to your projects.
 Gain a better understanding of how these systems are being installed in the field and the minimal changes to current
construction practices.
