EVENT THEME

Detailing High-Performance Facades: Cladding Decisions and Sealant Strategies

Today’s high-performance facade standards require the deft balancing of aesthetics, technical detailing, and the demands of the client and local building regulations. This workshop will discuss both material and technical solutions to meet those standards. Experts will be on hand to lead tutorials on the most recent innovations in rainscreen cladding, sealant solutions, and much more. Attendees will leave with a greater knowledge of material applications at the cutting-edge of energy performance and code compliance, all while learning of attractive solutions for clients and end users.

What are thermal breaks, and how do they work? This session explores the main methods of adding thermal breaks into aluminum frames. We will cover how thermal barriers work and the various thermal barrier technology options that are available. We will discuss how architects can use different combinations to meet the energy demands of each project and code requirement.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize and use the benefits of a thermal barrier in aluminum fenestration systems
  • Recognize available thermal barrier technology options and how each one works
  • Identify the test procedures and standards used to evaluate system performance
  • Examine the benefits of properly leveraging the connection between interior and exterior environments

Reaching towards Net Zero energy ready buildings is becoming a popular topic in todays climate changing world. Energy efficiency has expanded towards exterior wall assemblies where effects of thermal bridging are considered and thermally broken sub-framing systems are becoming the new norm. This course will identify and compare various cladding attachment methods on the market. Learn how to determine the appropriate clip for your project and how to compare effective thermal resistance required to achieve projects targeted R – Value.

Learning Objectives

  • In this presentation you will be able to understand how the use of thermal clips will impact thermal bridging on various exterior wall assembly applications.
  • Identify types of clips currently on the market.
  • Learn how to calculate the number of clips required on your project by identifying structural forces involved to determine clip spacing.
  • Gain insight on how the NFPA 285 fire code applies to thermal clips.
  • Acquire a new ability to effectively detail thermal clips on architectural drawings.

Level 2 – Intermediate Program

This course will discuss considerations for the holistic design and construction of durable, long-lasting structures that are sustainable, safe and resilient. A building’s primary goal is to protect the lives, lifestyles and livelihoods of its occupants. Precast concrete has numerous qualities that can help buildings perform efficiently and offer occupants and communities healthy, flexible and useful spaces that can be effectively utilized over many years. Attendees will have the chance to see and hear case studies of projects that used precast concrete for durability, resilience, and sustainability, and examine important qualities and attributes to consider when specifying the material.

Learning Objectives

  • Define the concepts of resilience and sustainability with a focus on holistic design and long-term, lifecycle performance.
  • Analyze how material choices made impact the safety and wellbeing of occupants over the life of the building and future design concepts.
  • Identify how precast, prestressed concrete can contribute to designs that are sustainable, efficient, durable and resilient enough to protect the lives, livelihoods and lifestyles of occupants and communities.
  • Examine case studies of sustainable, resilient and safe projects that effectively utilized precast concrete to achieve their goals.
