Who we are

The goal of the Building Performance Knowledge Community (BPKC) is to promote architects as leaders in the application of technical design for building performance; in the use of high-performance design criteria, codes, and standards; and in programming, designing and managing building performance. To advance, disseminate, and advocate—to the architecture profession, AIA members, building owners, the construction industry, the academy, and the public—design practices that create buildings that are healthy, energy efficient, and durable.

New library: whether or not to insulate a composite (solid) masonry wall

  • 1.  New library: whether or not to insulate a composite (solid) masonry wall

    Hi everyone,

    We just added a new library of reference articles about whether or not to insulate a composite (solid) masonry wall.  Are there any other resources you think we should include?

    Thank you to @E. B. Gellert AIA for curating the library.
