10AM - 11AM ET
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.
11AM - 12PM ET
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.
12PM - 1PM 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.
1PM - 2PM ET
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
2PM - 3PM ET
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.
