This Lunch & Learn course offers an introduction to the effects of thermal bridging in concrete connections, such as balconies, parapets and slab edges. Possible solutions will be discussed, including the benefits of using structural thermal breaks to address them. Attendees will learn where thermal breaks are most commonly used, how they can be incorporated in the building envelope design, and what benefits are gained by using them.
