Benefits of Opaque Glass and Back Ventilated Complete Rainscreen Systems

This course examines the use of opaque glass as a façade material in a drained and back ventilated rainscreen system. Highlighted within will be the design consideration and benefits thereof when designing with and specifying opaque glass rainscreen. The importance of the building science principle of exterior wall assembly control layers, and the role they play in providing occupant health and safety will be emphasized for use with opaque glass, open-joint, drained and back ventilated complete rainscreen systems. Presentation will also address sustainability, safety and durability benefits that are associated with properly designed and manufactured opaque glass panels. while providing an understanding of required test criteria and typical test results when opaque glass panel are used within an open-joint, drained and back ventilated complete rainscreen system.

Achieving Performance and Aesthetics with Engineered Building Enclosure Solutions

Today’s aesthetics require increasing complexity: combining claddings, colors and surfaces. Design professionals must consider how the integration of multiple systems, vendors and subcontractors to achieve their aesthetic goals may affect the performance of the building enclosure. This course presents a unique approach to designing for performance while achieving aesthetic goals, focusing on engineered systems that provide continuous control layers and connectivity between multiple claddings, and resulting in simplified design and construction processes

Designing with Modern EIFS

This course introduces EIFS and explores how today, it is one of the few truly complete, engineered exterior wall cladding systems available, providing all control layers, long term resiliency, and a wide variety of aesthetics options.

There are many choices of exterior wall cladding systems to choose from. Design professionals may have heard of EIFS, unaware that today’s systems are quite different from the original system of the late 1950’s. EIFS continuously evolves to remain ahead of building and energy codes, includes new technologies and affords maximum design freedom to architects.

A Complete Approach to Façade Restoration

This course presents a complete approach to exterior cladding restoration for EIFS, Stucco, Concrete and Masonry. It explains why restoration is an important topic in the discussion of resilience and sustainable building. It enforces mindfulness of the look, fix and performance of an existing building throughout the restoration project to ensure the goals of all stakeholders are satisfied. Audience will learn the benefits of the compatibility among components and understand the relationship of building performance with health and safety. Lastly, the course will review this approach using real-world restoration project examples.

A Complete Approach to Rainscreen

This course presents the complete design approach to rainscreens and explains why rainscreens are an important topic for the building envelope and enclosures. This course enforces the use of control layers to maximize the use of a drained, backed ventilated rainscreen system performance for both new and existing buildings. Audience will learn and be able to identify different rainscreen technologies and how a complete approach is beneficial to a building’s performance, by ensuring compatibility among components and understand the relationship of control layers of the exterior wall assembly for health and safety of occupants. Lastly, the course will review this approach using real-world rainscreen systems.

Prefabricating Architectural Elegance Nano Module #1: Aesthetic Versatility and Schedule Certainty

This quarter-credit course demonstrates the aesthetic possibilities offered by prefabricated exterior walls, and the benefits that prefabrication brings to construction schedule certainty. It also illustrates improvements to jobsite safety and construction waste management made possible by prefabrication

Course No: STO21901NAN1 – 0.25 hour (0.25 LU/HSW)

Prefabricating Architectural Elegance Nano Module #2: Aesthetic Versatility and Construction Economics

This quarter-credit course builds on the concepts shown in Nano Module #1. It describes how diverse constructability challenges can be uniquely and effectively solved using prefabricated exterior walls. Through a case history approach, it shows how construction projects ranging from health care, hospitality and student housing to retail development and restoration can benefit from prefabrication.

Prefabricating Architectural Elegance: Design for Prefabrication

This quarter-credit course is focused on stages within the architectural process where the decision to prefabricate is relevant. Using a case history approach, it describes projects where design-build teams identified the benefits of prefabricated exterior walls in Design Development, then successfully redesigned the project to realize these benefits. It contrasts this with projects where prefabricated exterior walls were considered in Schematic Design, then incorporated into the original design process.

Prefabricating Architectural Elegance

This full-credit course uses a case history approach to provide a comprehensive overview of prefabricated exterior walls.  It illustrates the aesthetic possibilities that are available, and describes unique constructability solutions that prefabricated walls provide.  Improvements to construction schedule certainty, jobsite safety and construction waste management are specifically considered.

The presentation concludes by contrasting successful projects that were redesigned for prefabrication with projects designed with prefabrication in mind.
