Maximize Thermal Performance with Lightweight Precast Concrete Modular Cladding – Explore how lab-tested R-values deliver high-performance envelopes

Program: Architecture, Design, and Building Science

This course will demonstrate the significant difference that can exist between prescriptive and lab-tested R-values and offer architects important insights into the various ways that lightweight precast concrete modular cladding is able to deliver an envelope with much improved thermal performance over the traditional built-up solution.

Specifying Grab Bars for People of All Sizes

Program: Architecture, Design, and Building Science

Architects are increasingly being asked to consider people of size in their designs. Unfortunately, there is no existing design standard that addresses the needs of this group. This course will explore the special considerations that must be made when selecting and specifying a grab bar that will support the growing segment of the population referred to as people of size.

Surface Engineered Metals for Resilient Design

Program: Architecture, Design, and Building Science

The purpose of this presentation is to give you a clear understanding of the features and benefits of textured metals and discover how to best specify stainless steel and metal alloys in your projects. The first part of our talk will introduce the ecological and economic properties of textured stainless steel as well as educate you on the composition of metals and alloys. The second portion of this presentation will illustrate the process of texturing metals and their applications, as well as how to specify them. The session will also review projects that use textured metals -  with beautiful results.

You will be required to download Supplementary Case Study Material from the International Stainless Steel Foundation that pictures and describes exeptional architectural stainless installations around the world. The descriptions reinforce the sustainability, low-maintenance, durability and aesthetic advabtages of designing with metal alloys.  

A score of 70% or greater is required on the assessment quiz in order to confer a Certificate of Completion for this course.
