Demand for increased energy efficiency is reflected in the most-recent (2012) revision of the International Energy Conservation Code. Stricter energy performance requirements will require, among other things, additional insulation. As more municipalities are moving in this direction, we are in a position to provide education on building science in relation to current building codes and energy efficiency standards.
Earlier this week, we had the chance to partner with Steinwart Sales Corp. for a training presentation titled Building Science and Codes in conjunction with the Johnson County Contractor Licensing Program. Change can bring about confusion, so we were fortunate to have this opportunity to work with our manufacturer, Icynene, to help local contractors and inspectors understand the changing codes and how they apply to our region.
