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.

Agenda

  • Credit type: 1 LU/HSW
  • Provider: Kalwall
  • Presenter: Mike Crowder

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.

Learning Objectives
  • Effective and versatile Daylighting strategies and techniques.
  • Special performance options and benefits.
  • Applications for sustainable design.
  • Diffused daylighting for security, health and safety and inviting interior spaces.

  • Presenter: Eric Lacroix

Today’s high-performance building enclosures demand high performance fire protection! The development of new “Hybrid Window Wall designs” has created issues on projects throughout North America. Curtain wall consultants and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ’s) are requiring tested firestop solutions for this growing wall type. Fully understanding the role and value of perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever changing and complex designs cannot be overstated. As the industry changes almost on a monthly basis, understanding how to maintain the integrity of a non-rated hybrid window wall system for up to 2 hours is critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements during construction. Key topics are outlined below and will be discussed in detail incorporating PowerPoint & video.

Learning Objectives
  • Understanding the issues and concerns of new Hybrid Window Wall designs
  • Importance of testing for Hybrid Window Wall designs
    • Understanding ASTM E2307 and the Intermediate Scale Multi-Story Test Apparatus
    • Understanding the sequencing and installation of tested solutions
    • Documenting the performance of a successful perimeter fire barrier test
  • Common misconceptions about Hybrid Window Wall designs

  • Presenter: John Penta

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.

Learning Objectives
  • Review of Ventilated Facade credit contributions  to LEED-NC and LEED-EB building standards.
  • Working knowledge of the Ventilated Façade   Rain Screen building envelope system.
  • Benefits of the Ventilated Facade system related to energy savings, building environmental health and protection of the building structure.
  • Design hints that insure an economic envelope solution and efficient construction process.

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.
  • Credit type: 1 LU/HSW
  • Provider: Dupont
  • Presenter: Charles Bisignaro

This course defines and explains building science behind the code for the four con- trol layers of the building envelope: water, air, thermal, and vapor. Participants will then explore typical design principles as well as alternative system assembly approaches to exterior wall design. In addition, presentation covers common attachment strategies for various types of clad- dings, including masonry, rainscreen veneers, and applied/adhered veneers.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will learn the definitions, code, and building science for the water, air, ther- mal, and vapor control layers.
  • Participants will learn principles behind typical design of control layers in exterior wall for water, air, thermal, vapor.
  • Participants will explore wall system assembly design approach to exterior wall design to successfully maintain 4 control layers (water, air, thermal, vapor).
  • Participants will understand attachment strat- egies and building science considerations for masonry, rainscreen veneers, and applied/ adhered veneers
