Complexities and Benefits of Facade Automation Systems

Credits: 1 AIA HSW LU

An automated window/vent facade system can provide a wide range of benefits to a building design, such as ADA compliance and integration with a fire life safety system for smoke exhaust, but here we will specifically be discussing the application of using the automated facade to provide a natural/hybrid ventilation system.

Navigating Growing Pains: Optimizing Efficiency without Sacrificing Culture

Credits: 1 AIA LU

You know the saying “the devil is in the details”? When your firm is growing and the big picture looks great—that’s when growing pains seep in if you’re not proactive in managing your operations. Scaling your business means there’s a new set of challenges in front of you.

Aluminum Extrusions & High Performance Building Envelopes: Still the Answer

Credits: 1 AIA HSW LU

For well over a decade, architects, developers and builders have been focused on reducing the carbon footprint of their projects. Through a combination of site-generated energy, highly energy-efficient building systems, and creative design, net-zero buildings have become not only feasible but also practical.

Design and Collaborate Better with Autodesk Construction Cloud

Credits: 1 AIA LU

Today, collaboration and access to information from anywhere and anytime are critical to successful project management.

Join us as Nick Marchek, BIM Specialist at Microsol Resources, reviews the Autodesk Construction Cloud (released in early 2021). Focusing on the design phases, Nick will provide an overview of this new platform and review the key features and capabilities of the following products: Autodesk Docs, BIM Collaborate, and BIM Collaborate Pro.

Optimizing Renovation Projects Using Building Performance Analysis

Credits: 1 AIA LU

Buildings contribute nearly 40% of annual global CO2 emissions currently and about two-thirds of the global building stock will still exist in 2040. If not retrofitted, the existing buildings will continue to generate unsustainable levels of carbon emissions. Thus, this session will showcase how each one of these projects can be an ideal opportunity to incorporate enhanced energy performance strategies, without much extra effort or expense.

The Future of Architecture: Scaling for Growth in 2022

What if you had the tools to understand where you are with regard to all aspects of your firm? Key Performance Indicators can be defined and implemented to guide you towards both professional and personal success. If you can’t measure it, you can’t track it, and you won’t know how to improve it.

Advancements in Cladding Support Systems. Design + Performance.

Credits: 1 AIA LU

How cladding is attached and supported from the exterior of the wall assembly to the interior structure of the building is no longer just a question of transferring weight. The type of support system used can greatly affect energy performance, air and moisture penetration into the wall cavity, and the effectiveness of the finished design.

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.
