What: Boral®, an industry-leading provider of brick, stone, roofing, trim and siding, has launched, “Continuous Insulation and the Path to Sustainability,” a podcast that addresses how reliable continuous insulation materials can help the building industry move closer to sustainability and reduce building management costs. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, buildings account for approximately 40 percent of the total energy used in the U.S. today, making the use of high-grade materials and technologically advanced building techniques more important than ever. Listeners can expect a deeper dive on topics including:

  •     How continuous insulation contributes to carbon neutrality, sustainability and reduced building costs
  •     Recent building code changes and their respective impacts
  •     Best practices for applying continuous insulation, and more.

Why: As a highly industrialized nation, the United States consumes energy in many areas including manufacturing, transportation and construction. Builders must understand how to meet the challenges of building infrastructure – such as energy loss from thermal bridging – with the appropriate tools and methods.

Who: Listeners will hear from Boral technical manager Chris Hines, who helped lead the company’s efforts to consider how products could better perform in such code-required situations, and to create a first-of-its-kind Technical Evaluation Report.

Hines worked alongside engineering consultants, product manufacturers and third-party researchers who tested, modeled and examined products and solutions for the report. Among the performance attributes evaluated were the installation of Cultured Stone® by Boral manufactured stone veneer over wood, metal framing and continuous insulation.
