Managing the Elements - weathering storms and improving thermal performance
Credits: 1 HSW, 1 LU
Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science
It can be especially challenging to create a building that can effectively manage the elements. This course takes a closer look at a few of the products helping projects weather storm events and improve thermal performance. The benefits of permeable pavement solutions, architectural metal panel cladding, lightweight precast cladding panels, and thermally broken roof hatches will be explored and projects successfully employing these technologies will be profiled.
