Thinking green: strategies for a tight building envelope

Thursday, 28 June 2012

Colleges and universities that are looking for ways to improve energy efficiency and resulting cost savings are realizing that some habits start from the ground up, as discussed in “How to achieve a tight building envelope,” which appears in the June 2012 issue of College Planning & Management.

In the article, Jonathan Baron talks about the value to owners of investing in building component mock-ups and building commissioning, as well as the importance of evaluating the compatibility of different materials used in creating the building envelope.

Jonathan’s remarks on building enclosures and building systems have also appeared in Building Design + Construction and Eco-Structure magazines. He is co-chair of the Building Enclosure Council of the Boston Society of Architects.
