Three experienced practitioners will demonstrate that we needn’t (shouldn’t?) be captive to foam in the high performance building industry by showing practical solutions that eliminate foam in new and retrofit applications – above and below grade. Using real projects and assemblies, the speakers will discuss an integrated design build process, review the implementation of details and sequencing and the verification and commissioning of alternative construction methods. Without dwelling on the negative environmental impacts of foam insulations, alternative, safer insulation materials will be identified with lower embodied toxicity, energy and GWP.
