Application of Continuous Insulation in Walls for 2010 Oregon Energy Code

Location: 

University of Oregon-Portland

70 NW Couch, Room 142/144

Presenters: 

Mark Campion

Description: 

This month Mark Campion will present information on the application of continuous insulation in walls per the 2010 Oregon Energy Code requirement.

The 2010 Oregon Energy Efficiency Specialty Code introduced a new prescriptive requirement for thermal envelope performance, continuous insulation. Continuous insulation requires special consideration in its installation. Designers and contractors in Oregon have little experience with the design and installation of continuous insulation. The intent of the presentation is to provide an overview of the code requirements and provide guidance on code compliance, including alternate methods, design considerations and resource assistance for the design community.

Mark Campion is a policy analyst for the Oregon Building Codes Division. He is the primary contact person for COMCheck compliance software and is well versed in the compliance requirements.
