Description

Historic buildings are a special case in the world of Deep Energy Retrofits, as they bring additional constraints and special structural issues to the forefront. Still, bringing a beloved (but usually energy inefficient) community building into the resource climate of the 21st century is incredibly rewarding.

In this presentation, designed for architects, engineers, builders, and owners/operators of historic buildings, Marc looks at some of the key drivers and considerations. Several case studies are reviewed to highlight application of these principles.

Enroll and learn about...
--Why one should bother with retrofits
--Building deficiencies
--Which factors make a good DER candidate
--Envelope upgrades
--Exterior installations
--Masonry bearing wall buildings
--Thermal bridging
--Window considerations
...and much more!
