AbstractThis paper outlines the construction details, challenges, and instrumentation for long-term performance monitoring of this VIP wall system. Selected preliminary thermal performance data is included in this paper. It is hoped that successful adaptation of VIPs in this project will lead the way to eventual mass application of VIPs and enhanced energy efficiency in northern buildings.
