September O.W.L.S. Sponsored By: Carolinas Ready Mixed Concrete Association

September 11, 2018 at 12:00 PM

Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) combine the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with the versatility and energy efficiency of rigid insulation. With a lower first cost than wood and steel construction, ICFs improves occupant safety, fire resistance and noise transmission for office, hospital, school and retail buildings, among others. ICFs are also remarkably cost-effective as the thermal properties of ICFs can offer building owners significant energy savings over the long term. The presentation will also provide guidance on how to minimize the cost of ICF construction to take full advantage of the range of benefits, resulting in investments that are secure and generate long-term value.

This session will present to attendees a variety of energy efficiency strategies and an in-depth study of overall impacts on building design. A general overview of energy modeling process and a methodology to integrate it into the design process will be reviewed. We will then look at the importance of establishing a methodology to objectively quantify how well buildings are performing against their energy goals. We will explore how to use data to make decisions on using resources to achieve original or new goals of building performance. Finally, this session illustrates building energy metabolism and how key design parameters impact the energy load pattern. Uncover how to apply energy conservation strategies early in design to achieve a lean energy diet.
