Speaker Bio:
Medgar Marceau joined Morrison Hershfield in 2008 with a unique mix of building envelope, energy modeling and life cycle assessment experience. In addition to Medgar’s building science expertise, he has extensive experience in whole building energy simulation, building envelope systems, life-cycle assessment (LCA) and material science including infrared thermographic analysis, modeling of air and moisture transfer through envelope systems, air leakage, and mass transfer. He is an expert on concrete structures and material properties of concrete and has conducted numerous investigations on concrete failure. Medgar has authored and co-authored dozens of publications on the subjects of life-cycle assessment, commercial and residential energy use, and sustainability. Medgar’s sustainability goal is to help designers increase building durability and reduce building energy consumption.
Synopsis of Presentation
How to Optimize the Envelope: A focus on renewable energy and mechanical efficiency to improve performance frequently overlooks the enclosure which is more permanent, rarely replaced, part of the building. This presentation introduces strategies for increasing energy performance and decreasing carbon emissions by improving the building enclosure. Strategies addressed will include minimizing heat loss through massing, orientation, and glazing, as well as reducing air leakage and thermal bridging. It talks about design strategies as well as frequent weak points in the performance of enclosures.

We hope to see you all there. You aren't going to want to miss this!
