Insulating From the Inside Out:
Retrofitting Masonry Structures
Wednesday, February 8, 2017
Retrofitting historic masonry buildings is a challenging undertaking. This presentation will focus on one of the biggest design challenges – how do we preserve the exterior masonry facade while improving the energy performance and indoor comfort? Attendees will learn about strategies to control the movement of heat, moisture and air using interior insulating approaches. Through a series of case studies, Ekaterina will present and discuss key challenges of the design and retrofit of solid masonry buildings as well as how durability concerns were addressed while meeting the demands of historical preservation.
