Energy Efficient Building Enclosures - Design Guide

Design Guide

This guide, developed by FPInnovations in collaboration with RDH Building Engineering Ltd., BC Housing, and the Canadian Wood Council, seeks to assist architects, engineers, designers, and builders in improving the thermal performance of building enclosures of wood multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) in response to the increasingly stringent requirements for the energy efficiency of buildings in the marine to cold climate zones in North America. It also hopes to advance MURB design practices, construction practices, and material use based on best knowledge.
