Metal Building Code Alert

Delaware Code Alert Download

The State of Delaware has updated the Delaware State Energy Code (Title 16, Chapter 76) and went into effect statewide on May 11, 2014. The new energy code is based upon 2012 IECC (International Energy Conservation Code®). There will be more insulation required for each building and there will be different installation methods and techniques in order to reach the intended thermal performance. Conditioned buildings will require more than a single layer or double layer of fiberglass compressed over purlins and behind girts. Here is a summary of the new metal building roof and wall intended performance levels and how Thermal Design’s Simple Saver System® complies.

Minimum Requirements

* Based upon 2012 IECC, Table 402.1.2

Climate Zone   Roof Wall
4 U-factor* U-0.035 U-0.052
Installed R-Value R-28.6 R-19.2
Prescriptive Value R19+R11 LS R13+R13ci

WARNING!

Exposed Purlins

Roof insulation systems which leave the conductive purlins exposed to the interior DO NOT meet the assembly description for a Liner System (LS) listed within the energy code. (Compare in the chart below)

(LS) Liner System: a continuous membrane installed below the purlins and uninterrupted by framing members. Uncompressed, unfaced insulation rests on top of the membrane between the purlins (2012 IECC, Table C402.2).

“ci” Continuous Insulation

Fiberglass insulation compressed behind or in front of wall girts and/or fiberglass insulation installed uncompressed between wall girts should NOT be considered “continuous insulation” because it does not meet the assembly description or minimum thermal performance.

(ci) Continuous Insulation: insulation that is uncompressed and continuous across all structural members without thermal bridges other than fasteners and service openings. It is installed on the interior or exterior or is integral to any opaque surface of the building envelope. (ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2013 definition)


Simple Saver System® is the Solution

Simple Saver System meet and exceeds {title} building codes.The installed performance of the Simple Saver System® surpasses the minimum requirements set for in the 2012 IECC and for the State of Delaware. Thermal Design has conducted hot box testing in accordance to ASTM C1363 on a variety of Simple Saver roof and wall assemblies that validates installed performance to demonstrate energy code compliance and envelope assembly modeling. 
Additional high R-value Simple Saver assemblies are available upon request, including additional options for thru-fastened roof and standing seam roofs without thermal spacer block.

Rasmussen Fitness & Sports Center, Creighton University

Name of Project:  Rasmussen Fitness & Sports Center, Creighton University
Location of Project:  Omaha, Nebraska 
Date of Project:  October 2012

Owner:  Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska
Contractor:  B-D Construction, Inc. – Columbus, Nebraska


The following was published in the July 2013 issue of Metal Construction News:

"The  Rasmussen Fitness & Sports Center in Omaha, Nebraska is one of the newest  buildings on Creighton University's campus. The beautiful three-level, 65,000 square foot multipurpose field house opened in October, 2012 and is enjoyed by a variety of students and organizations including Creighton Athletics, intramural and club sports. The new facility offers a synthetic field turf, rock climbing wall, fitness areas with cardio, circuit training and free weight equipment. There is also a suspended two-lane running track and a fitness mezzanine all supported by the metal building.

B-D Construction, Inc. (Columbus, Nebraska) erected the metal building provided by Behlen Building Systems (Columbus, Nebraska) which encompassed nearly 40,000 square feet of Behlen's custom color ZL-24® standing seam roof system and over 12,000 square feet of MBCI custom color FW-120 concealed fastener wall panel. The lower portion of the wall construction, behind the masonry, implemented girts spaced two feet on center and metal building wall panel with brick attached to it.

Nearly 80,000 square feet of Simple Saver System®, manufactured by Thermal Design, Inc. (Madison, Nebraska) was provided for the insulation and interior finishing system. B-D Construction, Inc. installed R25 wall system after the exterior wall panels were installed and relied upon the fall protection feature with Thermal Design's R35 roof system. The enhanced Super White UVMAX® coating on the Simple Saver roof system provides a bright white finished appearance, which directly compliments the abundant amount of natural daylight entering the facility from each orientation.

The overall erection time frame was only five months. “The most challenging piece to the project was the extensive coordination needed between the conventional building components, architectural aesthetics and the pre-engineered structure to make it all work together in the end.” Chris Langan, Project Manager from B-D Construction, Inc."
