High R-Value Wall Assemblies

High R-value enclosures are an important area of research in the development of ultra low energy buildings. BSC’s ongoing High R-Value Enclosure project, undertaken for the US Department of Energy’s Building America program, aims to identify and evaluate residential assemblies that cost-effectively provide a 50 percent improvement in thermal resistance over current building code minimums. The documents below summarize our research results related to wall assemblies.
