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.
Rising construction costs and skilled labor shortages fuel demand to transform the construction industry and seek innovation in traditional delivery methods. Modular Construction is an alternative delivery method that successfully drives construction efficiencies. Modular Construction also addresses the demand to reduce construction time and improve coordination of trades. This along with Green Construction practice’s goal of reducing construction site waste all have made Modular Construction a method of choice in today’s commercial construction. This session explores solutions for designing high-performance façades to support modular construction trends in commercial and multifamily segments.
