High-Performance Glass and Aluminum Building Envelopes

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

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.

The Benefits of Graphics in the Built Environment

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Most of us are unaware of the important role that graphics, art, and signage play in the built environment. Graphics set the tone when we walk into a space. The feeling we get when we see a wall mural in the lobby can determine how much time we want to spend with the company. Images of the company’s research scientists, a hospital’s compassionate caregivers, or the mouthwatering food at a restaurant trigger that positive first impression: •This company values innovation and research. •I’m in good hands after my surgery. •Everything on the menu looks fabulous. Signage also plays a critical role. Reinforcing the logo, ensuring visitors don’t get lost, and providing safety should not be overlooked. This course will review the benefits and types of large graphics and the industry applications of each.

Get Inspired! Design Smarter, Safer, and Greener with Innovation in Wood-Framed Construction 2020

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Wood is a frequently overlooked building material for light-medium-commercial construction including mid-rise, multi-family, and mixed-use projects. This course features several North American examples that highlight the surprising capabilities of this natural resource. Many architects, engineers, and project owners often default to steel and concrete instead of wood for wall, floor, and roof assemblies. This course outlines: - common misconceptions and capabilities of code-approved wood applications. - the environmental and structural benefits of this sustainable natural resource. - the virtues of wood when engineered for pre-cut and pre-assembled components. - how wood applications integrate with building codes, construction techniques, and technical support. - how choosing wood first contributes to on-time and on-schedule projects with significant cost savings.

  • Eli Gould Presenter
    Eli graduated with one of the first dual Architecture/Forestry degrees from Yale in the early ‘90s, with a conviction that the two fields would eventually be more linked. After a quarter century, this seems more true and even mainstream, but for many years it was an entrepreneurial effort in the small vertical wood prefab companies he ran in Vermont, and in the automated timber industry where he often consulted. For the last three years, Eli has brought those experiences into a nonprofit market development role for QWEB. When he’s not trying to transform the AEC industry into a positive climate force he enjoys small town and organic farm life in Vermont with his family.
