Insulated Metal Wall and Roof Panels for Sustainability and Energy Efficiency defines insulated metal wall and roof panels (IMPs) in terms of their material, finish and construction life cycle, and how they are designed with features and benefits to enhance building performance, conserve energy and contribute to the sustainable built environment and net-zero energy buildings.
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- explain how IMPs lower building energy costs, prevent moisture intrusion and improve the thermal comfort of the occupants
- compare the insulating values of IMPs to traditional systems and illustrate how IMPs reduce the carbon footprint of a building
- analyze the sustainability and performance criteria of IMPs relative to qualifying for credits under today’s green building rating programs
- discuss how IMPs serve as walls, ceilings and roofs in new and retrofit construction, and how they can be easily adapted to pre-engineered metal building designs, and differentiate various types of IMPs based on their performance attributes and aesthetics
