Improving air quality and energy performance of Toronto high-rise apartment buildings

A civil engineering professor and PhD candidate from the University of Toronto explained the concept of Nested Thermal Envelope Design (NTED) at the recent Building Envelope Solutions conference.

NTED was developed by Kim Pressnail, a University of Toronto civil engineering professor, Ryerson University professor Russell Richman and Marianne Touchie, a PhD candidate in civil engineering at U of T.

Pressnail and Touchie presented their idea, which aims to reduce energy usage in older high-rise apartments, at Building Envelope Solutions, produced by MMPI.
