Abstract
This guide explores how the building industry in British Columbia can meet the challenges of reducing energy use in buildings, in part by effectively accounting for the impact of thermal bridging. Most practitioners will find PART1 and Appendices A and B to be most useful. PART 1 outlines how to effectively account for thermal bridging. Appendices A and B provide a catalog of common building envelope assemblies and interface details, and their associated thermal performance data. Researchers and regulators will be interested in PART 2 and PART 3, and Appendices C to E. They contain the cost-benefit analysis, and discussion on significance and further insights, of using this guide to mitigate thermal bridging in buildings.

Abstract
This guide was jointly developed by FPInnovations; the Homeowner Protection Office, Branch of BC Housing; BC Hydro; FortisBC; and the City of Vancouver. It is based on the building industry’s design and construction practices and relavent research. The majority of the content was prepared by Chris Mattock of Habitat Design + Consulting Ltd. This guide focuses on design and construction strategies and detailed measures to improve home energy efficiency in British Columbia. The primary purpose of this publication is to provide guidelines for designers and builders who are interested in the design and construction of single-family and small multi-family buildings that are substantially more energy efficient and lower in environmental impact than traditionally built homes.
