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.

Rising construction costs and skilled labor shortages fuel demand to transform the construction industry and seek innovation in traditional delivery methods. Modular Construction is an alternative delivery method that successfully drives construction efficiencies. Modular Construction also addresses the demand to reduce construction time and improve coordination of trades. This along with Green Construction practice’s goal of reducing construction site waste all have made Modular Construction a method of choice in today’s commercial construction. ​This session explores solutions for designing high-performance façades to support modular construction trends in commercial and multifamily segments.​

Learning Objectives
  • Attendees will explore market trends that are propelling demand for alternative construction delivery methods for office and multifamily facades. ​
  • Attendees will learn methods for designing façade solutions that fulfill performance needs and support innovative construction trends.​
  • After the presentation, attendees will have a deeper understanding of the range of product applications available to support off-site glazing solutions for modular façade construction.​
  • By the conclusion of the presentation, attendees will better understand options for leveraging collaborative design-build methods to deliver modular facades.

This course provides an update on the advancements in perimeter fire containment systems for galvanized backpan assemblies. The value of understanding the performance of galvanized backpan assemblies in today’s ever changing complex designs cannot be overstated. By identifying the unique challenges that these assemblies present in the design phase, you can eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.

Learning Objectives

  • Define the role and value of perimeter fire containment systems in today’s ever changing and  complex galvanized backpan assembly designs.
  • Identify the code requirements for perimeter fire protection.
  • Describe how galvanized backpan assemblies perform per ASTM E 2307 testing and the importance of independent third-party testing for perimeter fire containment systems.
  • Recognize the complexity of aluminum framed galvanized backpan designs and how to address them

  • Presenter: Roger Geraets

This course is an introduction to the timeless beauty of natural stone, manufactured for use as a lightweight façade alternative to traditional masonry materials when planning a new project. Participants will get an understanding of the extraction of common types of stone suitable for lightweight manufacturing. The process by which dimensional stone slabs are fabricated and bonded to aluminum honeycomb, and an education in the various finishes that can be achieved on lightweight panels for specific architectural features, such as cornices and other design conditions. Lastly, the participants will learn about performance testing, LEED benefits, the speed and ease of lightweight stone panels, and how lightweight stone can reduce design, engineering, and installation costs.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how natural stone can be selected and extracted using sustainable practices, and provide the basis for creating lightweight stone panels.
  • Learn about the manufacturing process of creating a lightweight stone panel, which utilizes less stone in the process and saves natural resources.
  • Identify the various aesthetc options available and architectural features that can be achieved when using lightweight stone panels.
  • Discover how utilizing lightweight stone panels can meet structural performance requirements, are safe in extreme environmental conditions, can achieve LEED credits, and can help reduce design, engineering and final installation costs.
