AbstractDespite recent advances in highly performing envelopes that are technically feasible and can reduce heatloss by about one half, most current construction still just meets the provincial building code minimum of2" x 6" constructions with conventional batt insulation. This project addresses several barriers to theadaptation of new envelope systems, including issues of buildability, incremental cost of labour,materials, and wall system energy performance assessment.
