10AM - 11AM ET
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.
11AM - 12PM ET
A detailed explanation of the North American Fenestration Standard specification, which explains how and why windows and doors are tested to the AAMA standard and how to use the NAFS document to select and specify products based on required performance requirements.
Complex project designs & evolving enclosure material options combined with demanding weather conditions & confusing product performance attributes can be challenging to synthesize. Because thermal value code targets are increasing, along with the uncertainty of future energy costs & weather patterns, getting the project’s insulation strategy right is critical. This session examines the performance attributes of exterior insulation options under real world conditions to better enable the design & installation of higher performing, more resilient and durable walls.
1PM - 2PM ET
Buildings have differing needs for aesthetics, performance, and functional operations. Few building materials have as great an impact on all three of these areas as glass since it plays a unique and important role in building design and the environment. Glass now plays a critical role in achieving a wide variety of dynamic and varied performance requirements from reducing bird strikes to generating power to minimizing building carbon impacts. Understanding these evolving technologies can help improve building design.
2PM - 3PM ET
This course provides details and information in exterior facade applications using porcelain panels. Provides knowledge on sustainability values in the material itself and installation process and also gives a full understanding of design possibilities.
