From December 2021 all the construction projects in Quebec should follow new Draft Regulations Amending Quebec Construction Code. This research investigated the impact of the implementation of section 3 of the new code which relates to the envelope thermal resistance calculation by considering thermal bridges. During phase one the calculation method will be applied for the most common construction details of the building envelopes in Quebec. Phase two will challenge the accuracy of this method compared with other international standards and advanced numerical tools of 2D and 3D heat transfer models. In the end, the most efficient construction details that can meet the Quebec weather and building types requirements will be categorized.
