Wood Glazed Facades in Net-Zero and Passive Buildings

08:05 AM - 09:05 AM

Architects and LEED professionals understand the numerous benefits of building with wood. But, many are unaware of its application in a timber curtain wall (TCW). Today’s technology provides opportunities to incorporate the beauty and energy-efficiency of wood into glazed facades that not only bring the outdoors in but also serve as the building’s heavy lifter. 

This course will present the differences between a conventional curtain wall and a timber curtain wall (TCW) including load-bearing and non-load-bearing capabilities as well as net-zero and passive building. We will also show example of projects using TWC.

09:10 AM

Building Facade Glazing: Specify the right sealants in structural and non-structural applications.

09:10 AM - 10:10 AM

During our Building Façade Glazing training, participants will learn about the different families of sealants and how to choose the correct product for each application. We will discuss the effect of UV light on sealants and the difference between structural or non structural silicone sealants. And finally, the importance of surface preparation before sealing joints.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Few aspects of the design process are conducted in “silos” as disassociated from one another as how many projects approach interior concrete slab specifications and subsequent flooring specification sections. This is not done intentionally, rather it is by-product of lack of coordination, and fundamental misunderstanding, between those involved with the structural elements and those involved with the aesthetic and finishing elements. During this presentation, we will discuss sustainability and what it means; drawing the attendee into a clear discussion of how sustainability relates to LEED, Lean Construction, Green Building, and process improvement. Inconsistencies with current specification processes related to concrete moisture as compared to the tenets of sustainability will be exposed, with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can resolve those disconnects.

High-Performance Glass and Aluminum Building Envelopes

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This course provides a comprehensive understanding of the glass-aluminum building envelope featured in high-rise construction. We’ll review the three main- types of curtain walls and the installation process for each. Design and functionality will be addressed specifically to project objectives along with the environment-conscious benefits of using glass and aluminum. Lastly, the course will review how to avoid moisture, temperature, and other pitfalls and failures in curtain-wall installation.

Detailing Continuity in Building Enclosure Systems

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

This course emphasizes the importance of detailing continuity in maintaining the integrity of the four control layers of the building enclosure. We will explore methods for identifying areas where continuity can be disrupted and solutions for maintaining control layer continuity in these areas.

Sustainable Exterior Envelope

02:20 PM - 03:20 PM

At the end of this course, participants will know how to increase the durability of wood products used on building exterior envelope, understand best installation practices and differences between popular wood treatment methods. This AIA continuing education program touches on these issues and more, helping you design an exterior envelope that is durable and healthy for the home.

Understanding Advanced Wall Systems with Continuous Insulation

03:20 PM - 04:20 PM

This session explores evolving trends in building enclosure technology, and subsequent changes in energy efficient building design; with especial focus on the role of continuous exterior insulation (CI). The net energy savings realized in a properly insulated building are by now well understood, and these savings are increasingly being required by stringent local building and energy codes. Current building science research and field monitoring data will be presented, to demonstrate how the effective R value of various insulating materials perform and change in differing regional climates, temperature ranges, and seasonal conditions. Strategies for designing and constructing highly insulated and cost effective wall assemblies while still minimizing thermal bridging are also discussed.
