I give many presentations throughout the year on commercial energy codes. How the codes have evolved, what you should know about the current landscape, how to prepare for upcoming code changes in specific states – all great information. With these presentations, though, our audience is limited to the folks in the room. So, I got together with the folks at Metal Construction News and Metal Architecture to organize a webinar that will summarize the key commercial energy code information I’ve talked about over the past year.
Mark your calendars for Thursday, November 16th at 1 p.m. ET. This is an AIA-approved course and registrants can earn 1 LU for attending the webinar. More on that below.
What’s a Webinar, Anyway?
A webinar is a live, interactive online seminar (webinar = “web” + “seminar”). During our webinar, you’ll be able to see my screen as I go through the presentation, and you’ll be able to hear me speak. You will also be able to ask questions like you would during an in-person presentation.
The webinar will be recorded and posted to our Therm-All YouTube channel within a day of the broadcast. This means that you’ll be able to watch the webinar even if you can’t attend the live broadcasting. You should still sign up to “attend” the webinar, since this is the only way we can send you the webinar link once it’s published.
What I’ll Cover
In a nutshell, only the important stuff. Highlights include:
- The latest metal building envelope requirements in both the IECC Code and ASHRAE 90.1 Standard.
- Air barriers and their increasing importance in the code literature.
- Metal building insulation systems that satisfy all code requirements.
- Future commercial energy code changes you should be aware of.
When: Thursday, November 16th from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET

Once you register, you’ll receive a confirmation email with directions for joining the webinar. Save that email so you have the link handy on the day of the webinar. Also, you may want to double-check your system requirements beforehand to make sure your browser and audio are compatible with the GoToWebinar software.
The current commercial energy code landscape is complex, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Whether you’re a builder, architect, specifier or sales manager – it doesn’t matter, there will be something in this presentation for everyone in the metal building industry.
If you have any questions about the webinar, fill out the form on our Energy Codes page and I’ll send you an email. Otherwise, I hope to “see” you November 16th.
