Background:
Building energy code updates and stringent energy efficiency requirements arising from global movement towards heavily insulated net-zero or net-positive building construction have created a historic opportunity to integrate advanced thermal insulations, primarily aerogel and vacuum insulation panel (VIP), in building envelope construction. Aerogel has about 2 to 3 times higher insulating capacity than traditional thermal insulations and the same for VIP is about 5 to 10 times.

However, uptake of these insulations in the Canadian construction industry has been extremely slow due to a number of technical, economical and regulatory issues.

This presentation will highlight how these issues can be and are being addressed in Canada and around the World.

Phalguni

Speaker Bio:
Phalguni is an applied engineering researcher and started his research career in 1997, immediately after finishing his doctoral studies from the University of Sheffield, UK. Initially, his research focused on new construction materials and structural strengthening techniques. Soon thereafter, he expanded his research horizon towards the heat-air-moisture responses of exterior building envelope materials and systems. Hence, in a true sense, he is a multidisciplinary building envelopes and structures researcher who brings together the fundamentals of Civil, Mechanical and Materials engineering to address pressing concerns of the construction industry and its stakeholders.

Phalguni has contributed to the development of national and international moisture design guidelines for exterior building envelopes, materials test standards (ASTM International (www.astm.org)); ISO (www.iso.org); ULC (www.canada.ul.com), and International Energy Agency (IEA (www.iea.org)) Annex reports on high performance thermal insulations. At present he is leading (nominated and elected global convener) the development of an ISO standard for Vacuum Insulation Panel (VIP), which has about 10 times thermal insulating capacity than traditional thermal insulations, for building envelope applications.

Student Sponsorship Program

We’re pleased to confirm our student sponsorship program is available again for the 2017/18 season! The goal of this program is to encourage student participation in our chapter through sponsored attendance at monthly dinner meetings. Students are provided the opportunity to meet local professionals from a variety of disciplines while learning about topics relevant to the construction industry. Sponsored seats - paid through donations from chapter members and local businesses - are offered to students on a first come first served basis.

Request a Sponsored Dinner: Be one of the first students to email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with "FREE DINNER" in the subject line to claim your seat for this month. You’ll receive an email confirming your reservation along with the donor’s name.

Sponsor a Student: A donation of $20/seat can be made through our secure online payment system. For help or to make other arrangements please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
