The Building Envelope Campaign, launching June 10, 2020, has been developed by the Building Envelope Technology Research Team, a part of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Better Buildings Program, to help building owners and managers create more energy-efficient buildings by targeting the building envelope thermal performance, determining available energy savings and providing technical support. Both new construction and retrofit projects completed since January 2019 are eligible to participate in the campaign and be recognized formally by DOE for their high-performing building envelope.

Ms. Hayley McLeod recently joined Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) after 5 years in industry as a LEED Specialist and Sustainability Consultant. She now serves as a technical professional and project manager for the Building Envelope and Urban Systems Research (BEUSR) Group, and is working on several projects across the commercial and residential building sectors.


Dr. Simon Pallin has worked in the building industry since 2005, and spent several years conducting research in Europe. He joined the Building Envelope Systems Research team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in 2013. Dr. Pallin serves as a building envelope risk assessment expert and works with both existing simulation tools, as well as creating new tools, to estimate the hygrothermal (heat and moisture) performance of building elements, such as walls and roofs. He is the technical lead for the commercial building integration team at ORNL, and greatly involved in residential building research under the DOE Building America program.
