Event Description

There is finally a better cost-effective way to get a thermally broken exterior wall, introducing a code compliant structural insulated framing system with a built-in thermal break. An initial R-Value of 20.2 through the entire wall structure solves the number one nemesis in the construction industry... how to minimize or stop the flow of heat and cold through a wall assembly... cost effectively. The structural insulated framing system is everything you need to construct an exterior wall or a party wall including the top and bottom plates, wall stud, king studs and jack studs, cripples, sole and sill plates. Imagine 99.23% complete thermal break. Made with an internal truss system that provides an incredible amount of strength allowing an 8' tall to a 16' tall stud to hold an impressive 3600 lbs; 3 times that of a 2x6. Code compliant for up to 5 stories in height.

Lessons Learned

1. Learn how to design, frame, bid, compare options, and build better structures that are highly energy efficient even if you have a stringent budget.

2. Discuss energy rebate programs and cost offsets that are available now and what could be in the future.

3. Articulate how this fits in in modular, residential, multifamily, and commercial construction techniques.

4. Know How to use this structural insulated framing system, aka SIFS, in curtain walls.
