Requirements, Trade-offs, and Unintended Consequences in the Building Envelope
June 18, 2020 1:00 PM CDT
This seminar explores how legacy and contemporary building enclosure systems address a suite of technical requirements in an increasingly complex regulatory environment and in an era of heightened end-user expectations.
Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Describe four control layers associated with contemporary building envelope analysis and design.
- Identify six additional considerations of equal, or sometimes greater, importance to the performance and pathology of the building envelope.
- Provide three examples of negative side effects from otherwise well-intentioned retrofits.
- Discuss decision-making strategies for repair, replacement, or overcladding of existing buildings
Live Q&A will follow the presentation.
