Building Profiles: New Construction
Building Profiles for residential construction were developed by BSC to be appropriate for specific climates. The profiles include building cross sections, enclosure and mechanical design recommendations, field expertise notes, material compatibility analysis as well as climate challenges. Each climate has multiple profiles listed as there is more than one possible solution for design and construction of a high performance building within a single region.
