New Hampshire Residential Energy Code: R-Values

When architecturally designing a residential building, the New Hampshire Energy Code is a factor that must be considered throughout the design process. New Hampshire has the adopted the IRC 2015 Energy Code and these, as well as locally amended, requirements must be met in all new construction projects. Often these include prescriptive R-values. An R-value… Read More »

Laser Scanning Existing Building Conditions

Allow me to first offer my confession – I’m a Yankee, and compared to many, a relatively slow adopter of technology.  The transition to digital photography, GPS in our cars, and the fast evolution from cellular phones to smartphones is simply incredible. Sometimes necessity pushes me to try technology.  Google Earth has demonstrated to all… Read More »

Unbalanced Snow Loads

When roofs are pitched (i.e. angled), the snow collects differently than it does on flat roofs. Unbalanced snow loads occur on pitched (most commonly gable) roofs, and the building code tells us to consider these loads up to 7V:12H roof pitches. Here, some of our engineers are at Loon, mid-mountain, and this building has quite… Read More »

Team Attends Atlantic Prefab Event in Wilton, NH

We attended Atlantic Prefab’s (https://atlanticprefab.com/) 2019 Commercial Prefab Summit, where we heard about the latest in pre-fabricated wall panel and roof truss technologies. Prefabricated wall panels are revolutionizing mid- to high-rise construction. By constructing exterior wall panels with the entire wall assembly (framing, insulation, waterproofing, and finish) in a climate-controlled environment, construction speed is accelerating,… Read More »

Team Engineering attends Spray Foam Insulation Training

Team Engineering recently participated in an educational training session performed by Spray Foam Distributors of New England, Inc. As a design company, Team Engineering often specifies spray foam insulation as a great alternative, or in addition, to fiberglass or cellulose insulation. It stops air and moisture intrusion into the building, which also helps to prevent… Read More »
