Air-tightness, unconventional wall assemblies, and thermal bridging are examples of areas where a framing contractor can have a big impact on the execution of energy-efficient designs.
Understanding the need for the expansion of framing scope of work and for unconventional and often punctuated construction sequences is critical.
Successful framing for energy-efficiency also involves rigorous communication and continuous documentation of work.
Perhaps most importantly, tight wood-frame construction relies on management of dimensions - from building size and squareness to the quality of marking, measuring, cutting and fastening.
If you’re building a Net-Zero or Passive House building, Myers Projects has the knowledge and experience to make the framing/envelope stage a success.
