Top Glass 2019 seminar – Building Green in Toronto: TGSV3-compliant glazed assemblies
By Patrick Flannery
It’s Canada’s largest real estate market, and it has rules all its own. Toronto codes and standards are finally acknowledging the importance of building envelope in overall energy conservation measures. Yet highly glazed buildings continue to be in demand and have to respond to the more stringent requirements. This presentation will focus on Toronto’s TGSV3 requirements, explaining what facade designers have to do to meet both mandatory and stretch targets. We’ll also look at proposed changes to the Ontario Building Code and evaluate systems, assemblies, and components for highly glazed buildings and what it takes to achieve higher performance targets.
