Webinar On-Demand: This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. When structural stability and thermal continuity collide, structure has historically taken precedence necessitating tradeoffs such as increased insulation in other areas or acceptance of energy loss and potential moisture damage. The foundation transition from below grade to masonry ledge to masonry veneer wall is one such challenge. What if there was a solution? This presentation explores solutions for perimeter foundation insulation including information needed to specify and install correctly.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how the building science layers of thermal, moisture, air, and objectives of fire and acoustics can all be addressed with pre-cast walls.
  • Identify different types of assemblies, such as composite and non-composite and the benefits of each.
  • Identify common installation and detail problems that occur on the job site.
  • Address building code compliance, including meeting life safety and energy efficiency using pre-cast walls.

Pre-requisite: Basic understanding of foundation insulation systems.
