Fabrica Architects strive for excellent thermal performance in the design of our own projects and by providing consultancy services to contractors, clients and design team professionals on building performance design and regulatory requirements.
As TGD Part L, 2011 Building Regulations has increased elemental thermal performance and reductions in C02 emissions, heat loss due to thermal bridges has become increasingly important to quantify for use in DEAP in Ireland and SAP, SBEM in the United Kingdom.
Studies have shown that inadequate detailing at junctions can result in significant heat loss through the building and reduce U-Values to a level below the requirements of the building regulations, thereby impacting on certification under BC(A)R 2014.
All calculations are carried out to the following: BR497 convention, BR443, ISO 10211, ISO 6946 & ISO 13370 using Psi-Therm software
