Energy and the Architectural Fenestration Industry

Credits: 1 AIA LU

This course is designed to show the advantages of aluminum extrusion use in many architectural designs, from curtainwall to windows and doors, as well as railings and walkway covers, and will inspire limitless design opportunities for architects and engineers.

Achieving Performance and Aesthetics with Engineered Building Enclosure Solutions

Credits: 1 AIA LU

This course presents a unique approach to designing for performance while achieving aesthetic goals, focusing on engineered systems that provide continuous control layers and connectivity between multiple claddings, and resulting in simplified design and construction processes.

Spinach Ice-Cream for Architects – How to Have Fun while Keeping Your Firm Healthy

Credits: 1 AIA LU

Who doesn’t love design? It’s like a bottomless bowl of chocolate ice-cream.

Just like our bodies can’t survive merely on sweet desserts, your firm needs vegetables and protein too.

Most firms struggle with maintaining the proper balance between the fun side of our practice and the necessary effort to keep a firm running smoothly: managing projects and staff, keeping the cash flowing (more in than out), acquiring new business, on-and-on.

Join us for an engaging, live webinar presented by Steve Burns, FAIA, Chief Creative Officer at BQE Software. You will see how easy it is to finally bring balance to your firm by applying the same care and design to firm management as you do your projects.

Cloud computing is transforming firms like yours and how the rules of the game have been upended.

AEC Professionals are from Mars and Owners are from Venus

Credits: 1 AIA LU

As the title would suggest, what owners want (need) out of their BIM is worlds away from what the architects, engineers and contractors need to build the owner’s building.

Bird-friendly Glazing Solutions: Understanding the Fundamentals of Safe Design

Credits: 1 AIA HSW LU

Architecture tells us a great deal about society. In fact, glass and glazing are used to blur the lines between inside and out, helping elevate performance and the experiences of people. Yet while humans can use environmental cues to identify glass as a barrier, there is growing realization that birds cannot.

Prefabricating Architectural Elegance

Credits: 1 AIA HSW LU

This presentation uses a case history approach to provide an in-depth look at the benefits prefabricated exterior walls bring to construction projects. Effects on aesthetics, constructability, schedule, cost, and design practices are covered. This presentation also outlines how construction teams can optimize job site safety and minimize on-site construction waste using prefabricated exterior walls.

The ABC’s of Roller Shade Fabrics

Credits: 1 AIA HSW LU

This course gives designers and architects the ABCs of roller shade fabric and outlines how choosing wisely can improve a buildings’ overall performance as well as enhancing occupants’ comfort and productivity. Learn best practices for choosing materials that impact occupant well-being by optimizing daylighting, reducing solar heat gain, and eliminating VOCs.

Insulated Metal Panels: All-In-One Air and Water Barrier

Credits: 1 AIA HSW LU

Ideal for both retrofits and new construction as an all-in-one air and water barrier with continuous insulation, roof and wall insulated metal panels deliver a plethora of performance, erection, durability, and aesthetic benefits.

Advanced Revit Model Health Checks using Ideate Software

Credits: 1 AIA LU

Revit model health continues to be an important topic of discussion in our industry. As models grow from phase to phase, so does the complexity of the geometry and the information that users input into the Revit models. As deadlines loom and more help is added to projects, it is easy to forego modelling and drafting standards to meet those deadlines. The unfortunate side-effects of relinquishing modelling and drafting standards are unhealthy, bloated models that become increasingly difficult to work with, full of warnings, and full of confusing data that is unused or improperly used.

The OLED Lighting Experience

Credits: 1 AIA HSW LU

A course covering OLED lighting technology fundamentals, performance and differentiation – all with a focus on design freedom and aesthetic, including case studies and examples of OLED lighting installations.
