SOPREMA Presents,

Build Better Wall Assemblies

Tuesday June 20th 

9:00 am - 10:30 am

Ottawa Conference & Event Centre

Breakfast included

This is an in-person event only.

The Canadian construction industry is undergoing significant changes that will improve the overall energy performance of buildings. By 2030, the National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) will aim to achieve net zero energy consumption for all new buildings in Canada. This means that all new buildings will have to generate at least as much energy as they consume every year. Being a manufacturer or several products used in building assemblies, it is very important for SOPREMA to understand the interaction between materials. In order to build better, energy used to heat or cool a building should not be lost due to poor thermal insulation strategies. significant air leaks, or thermal bridges. Wall assemblies are divided into two main families, namely exterior insulated wall and hybrid insulated wall. More specifically, the guide indicates the insulation thickness required to meet the NECB requirements (LI-value or effective R-value) for each insulation technology offered by SOPREMA. Additionally, this second edition provides tables that designers can use to validate thermal performance of assemblies with more ambitious energy targets.


  • Overview of different types of wall assemblies
  • Guide to insulation requirements as per NECB
  • Review of tables and charts used to validate thermal performances
