SPEER Speaker's Bureau Webinar: Where Structure and Energy Efficiency Meet - What to Consider When Selecting a Wall System
The residential code is advancing beyond ERI and energy efficiency. In the last 10 years, builders have been facing increasing requirements on their wall bracing systems from code at the same time building product manufacturers are providing more options for wall bracing. This webinar will cover the energy and structural implications of these combined code and technology changes.
In this free webinar, we will walk through the changes you make when modeling the ERI in the 2015 IECC when a builder selects various wall bracing options. We will also learn the two prescriptive path options for wall bracing and how to use them to create a braced wall design.
