Considering schools retain buildings for decades, appropriate roofing product and system selection is critical as it can have a significant impact on the immediate, long-term performance, and cost efficiency of a building. Starting with defining key inputs to energy efficiency, including continuous air barriers and insulation, this webinar will evaluate the various roofing assembly options to improve the energy performance of an educational building. Topics covered will include reflective roofing and rooftop overburden, such as solar and amenity spaces, that can provide additional energy generation, learning spaces for students, and how to design and build resilient and durable roofing solutions.
- Identify key considerations when designing an energy-efficient roof for educational settings.
- Identify effects of roof reflectivity, overburden, and rooftop amenity space on learning and building energy performance.
- Evaluate the impact continuous air barriers and insulation have on energy performance of a building, including shorter HVAC runtimes.
- Determine how both product and system selection impacts the resiliency, durability, and energy efficiency of an educational building roof.
