10AM - 11AM CT
An examination of Exterior Grade Phenolic (EGP) including how and why it should be used to produce aesthetically pleasing, functional and safe rainscreen cladding systems.
11AM - 12PM CT
Topics discussed include daylighting strategies available through the integration of structural sandwich panels, energy conservation, enhancements, options, form and aesthetics. The many benefits to health, productivity, safety and sustainable design will be discussed, as well as specialty applications including explosion venting, blast resistance, OSHA fall through protection and hurricane resistance.
12PM - 1PM CT
In many buildings, there is room for error afforded to most building trades in terms of construction tolerances. Façade trades require much, much tighter tolerances in their fabrication and installation. No matter how complex or straightforward your building, the joints that marry the façade to the rest of the construction, and their varying tolerances, can be problematic. Through the lenses of multiple case studies, we will discuss real-world problems, processes, and solutions specific to delivering a high performing facade.
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.
