Introduction to Thermal Breaks

Posted by Tim Hardy P.E. on Jun 11, 2019 4:31:56 PM

Energy costs continue to be a factor in building design and construction with increasing pressure from consumers and building owners on architects and engineers to deliver more comfortable, energy efficient spaces. The construction industry is innovating to deliver what the market wants, in ways that the market can sustain from a cost standpoint.. Architects and structural engineers look to thermal breaks to improve building envelope thermal performance. The challenge as structural engineers is to incorporate the concept of thermal breaks while maintaining the structural design requirements of the building codes.
