Thermal Bridge Assessment Course by Target Zero - Ireland


Fri 29 Mar 2013 – Sat 30 Mar 2013
Midland Energy Training & Assessment Centre, Mountrath, Portlaoise, Ireland

AIM: This workshop will equip participants to use two modelling tool to analyze heat transfer in building envelope designs. THERM is a Laboratory that analyzes two-dimensional heat transfer through building assemblies. This workshop will enable participants to calculate thermal bridges (using THERM and Excel) for use in the Passive House Design Package (PHPP). COURSE CONTENT: After training participants will be able to: • Review and analyze examples of various building envelope connections • Optimize building envelope details • Problem solve unique cases such as window installations, thermal bridges and different foundation types • Identify proper inputs and outputs of THERM software • Apply a theoretical approach to thermal bridging as it relates to Passive Houses and the PHPP in both new build and retrofits Trainee Profile: Good computer skills including a working knowledge of MS Excel. Ability to read building plans and knowledge of typical construction methods. Duration: 1 day Certification: Certificate of Attendance & Completion Cost: The cost is €150 includes contact Darren O’Gorman on 00353876110344, email
