Future friendly Façade Interfaces
At the beginning of 2021 Resibuild conducted a survey called Condo Balcony Trends in 2021, this was to gain an insight of the design trends of high-rise residential balconies in Canada.
We had over 200 respondents of which 60% were involved in the designing and / or building of mid-rise and above MURBs/Condos.
Through this survey we found the top challenges faced when designing in balconies were.
Aesthetically pleasing design
Interface with other products
When looking at making buildings more energy efficient and sustainable getting the interfacing right can make a significant impact. This is no longer just a preference but with new regulations relating to energy use and sustainably this is becoming a legal requirement. Looking forward the goal that provinces and territories adopt a “net-zero energy ready” model building code by 2030 is giving construction the much need push in the right direction.
So how do we ensure we meet the new demands whilst still producing a cost effective and aesthetically pleasing building?
During this event we will be discussing these concerns with industry experts who will be sharing their experiences and hopes for the future.
See below a snippet of our previous events you can request to view.
Construction’s Carbon Dilemma: Why, When & How?
Sustainability and climate change continue to be key topics within the construction industry globally. The UK Government has set out to achieve an 80% reduction in greenhouse emissions by 2050. It is estimated that 25% of carbon emissions come from homes and a further 17% from non-domestic buildings, so a decision was been made to improve energy efficiency in every household.
Thermal Bridging is not a Bridge too Far
The era of net-zero homes is upon us. The race to design and build the super-efficient homes of tomorrow that is happening today. Canadians use significant amounts of energy to heat, cool, and ventilate their homes. Managing what happens inside the building envelope is only one part of the battle. How do we as an industry, conquer the thermal bridging question?
Due to ever-changing code requirements and building practices, Canadian housing stock has undergone significant change over the years in terms of its thermal performance. As compared to previous decades, new houses are built with higher insulation levels, better airtightness, and more efficient space heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. But with all those internal concerns address, what about outside the building envelope?
