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.

This course is designed to understand the limitations of the typical ETFE system,  how it can be customized and then how to take that customization and systemize it so it can be  repeated.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the four key limiting functional attributes of the typical ETFE system
  • Recognize the aesthetic limitations of typical ETFE systems
  • Understand the customization strategies that address limitations of typical ETFE systems
  • Discover new technologies to standardize improvements to ETFE systems and their capabilities

This course is designed to eliminate the confusion associated with the basics of perimeter fire containment systems. Fully understanding the role and value of tested perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever-changing and complex designs cannot be overstated and understanding the unique challenges of these designs present are critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.

Learning Objectives
  • Fully understand the basics of curtain walls and how they perform in a fire.
  • Understand the development of the IBC and State building codes in North America regarding the requirements for perimeter fire barrier systems.
  • Fully understand the impact of the ASTM E 2307 test standard on actual test that have been run. This easily documents the impact and severity of the new code requirement.
  • Design for success: Understanding the basics of all non backpan perimeter fire containment tested system.
  • To make understanding of curtain wall basics fun and easily understood.

This course presents the complete design approach to rainscreens and explains why rainscreens are an important topic for the building envelope and enclosures. This course enforces the use of control layers to maximize the use of a drained, backed ventilated rainscreen system performance for both new and existing buildings. Audience will learn and be able to identify different rainscreen technologies and how a complete approach is beneficial to a building’s performance, by ensuring compatibility among components and understand the relationship of control layers of the exterior wall assembly for health and safety of occupants. Lastly, the course will review this approach using real-world rainscreen systems.

Learning Objectives
  • Examine various rainscreen design and project examples, which illustrates the importance of a complete design approach.
  • Identify and describe the various rainscreen technologies and control layers of the building envelope and enclosures.
  • Explain the relationship of building performance with health and safety.
  • Explore the complete approach to rainscreen design and summarize the importance of compatibility among components within each layer.
