This event is jointly presented by Engineers and Geoscientists BC and British Columbia Building Envelope Council (BCBEC). Presentation of the difference early design decisions can have in terms of impact on the thermal performance of the building envelope compared to decisions that are made later in the process. These considerations will be interwoven with an overview of the responsibilities defined in the energy modelling guidelines for different team members.
