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.
