The Secrets for Successful Renovations (RFC0718)

Manufacturer sponsors providing content expertise include:
Assa Abloy, Eden Valders Stone, Extech, Legrand, and St. Cloud Window.

This article focuses on five specific challenges commonly faced during renovation projects: 1) updating the physical security provided at interior door openings, 2) incorporating more power, communications, and A/V access points, 3) increasing the presence of daylight in the interior, 4) using a less absorbent limestone to replace existing limestone or add new limestone accents to a façade, and 5) specifying the narrow sightlines necessary to replicate historic windows, while providing modern day structural, thermal, and acoustic performance.

Three Innovations Changing the Face and Function of Fabric Architecture

This fascinating course explores three new and innovative architectural products, each made from precision woven architectural fabric: a new exterior fabric membrane that allows for entirely new forms and functionalities in permanent static or kinetic fabric constructions; a new modular ceiling system made from photometrically and acoustically optimized precision fabric; and a new composite facade material made from a combination of glass, fabric and metal. Design and application, and the functional and sustainable benefits provided by each innovation are explored through real-world projects.
