MBPA Energy Forum 8.1: Excavationless Exterior Foundation Insulation, part 1 of 2 from MN Building Performance Assn on Vimeo.

The combination of hydro-vac precision excavation and a newly developed spray foam allows for a new way to insulate and reduce water intrusion in cold-weather foundations. The University of Minnesota's Tom Schirber presents this cutting-edge technique to the Minnesota Building Performance Association's Summer 2014 Energy Forum.

MBPA Energy Forum 8.2: Excavationless Exterior Foundation Insulation, part 2 of 2 from MN Building Performance Assn on Vimeo.

The combination of hydro-vac precision excavation and a newly developed spray foam allows for a new way to insulate and reduce water intrusion in cold-weather foundations. The University of Minnesota's Tom Schirber presents this cutting-edge technique to the Minnesota Building Performance Association's Summer 2014 Energy Forum. This Part 2 of the video includes an informal presentation of a similar technique to waterproof foundations, and a wide-ranging discussion about potential energy savings, permeability, and more.
