As a developer, you are well aware of the impact a finely detailed interior can make. By incorporating structural thermal breaks into your building envelope design, the attention to detail extends below the surface, giving prospects the confidence that you’ve “thought of everything” – even the benefits they can’t see.
Here are three of the most important benefits thermal breaks can offer buyers and renters:
If you needed another reason to incorporate thermal breaks into your next project, let’s talk about energy and building codes. 2016 ASHRAE 90.1 code already requires continuous insulation at all building penetrations when following a prescriptive path. Regardless of which version your local municipality is currently using, thermal breaks on building envelope penetrations will be required in the future. Why not be ahead of the curve?
The benefits are clear – you want to incorporate structural thermal breaks into your building. Now how do you convey the value to your prospective buyers and renters? Schöck has created some tools to help.
