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.

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 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.

Understand the benefits of a Thermal Break in Aluminum Fenestration Systems Recognize the options available in Thermal Break Technology and how each works Understand the test procedures and standards that are used today to evaluate system performance Realize the benefits of properly leveraging the connection between the interior and exterior environments

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize and use the benefits of a thermal barrier in aluminum fenestration systems
  • Recognize available thermal barrier technology options and how each one works
  • Identify the test procedures and standards used to evaluate system performance
  • Examine the benefits of properly leveraging the connection between the interior and exterior environment
  • Credit type: 1 LU/HSW
  • Provider: Dupont
  • Presenter: Sneh Kumar

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
