It’s a hot topic for August! Building envelope fires are in the news again. But the good news is, so are buildings with ever-smaller energy footprints. What does it take to make an energy-efficient facade that won’t go up in flames? Come learn about continuous insulation, high-performance air barriers, and cladding systems, and how to combine them safely. Understand what NFPA 285 really requires and when it applies. When your energy plan is “envelope first”, make sure that envelope is fire-safe, too.
