Facades+ AM

THREE SESSIONS — NINE SPEAKERS

Join Us in Seattle

The program includes three sessions covering issues unique to the region, including innovative building skins, future-proofing high performance facades, and the changing face of Seattle. These well-rounded, expert dialogues will inform and inspire.

The Facades+ conference series is a robust dialogue encompassing all things building skin—bridging the profession, industry, academia, operations, and ownership. We’ve distilled the best of the Facades+ 2-day event into a quick-take morning forum with a strong local flair. Facades+AM is returning to Seattle on December 7th, 2018.

Attendees Include:

  • AIA Members
  • Architects
  • Architecture Students and Faculty
  • Building Envelope Specialists
  • Construction Professionals
  • Developers
  • Engineers
  • Manufacturers
  • Materials Specialists

Program

The rapidly developing technology of high-performance facades has emerged as the key to building integration, and central to the realization of resilient buildings and a sustainable built environment. The building skin combines attributes of appearance and performance like nothing else in architecture. There is much to discuss. We invite you to join the conversation as we bring this forum back to Seattle in 2018.

2. Envelope Performance: Current Trends in Codes, Energy and Comfort

Seattle is recognized as having one of the nation’s most progressive building codes, which is driving higher expectations for envelope performance. However, modern office buildings comprise of narrower floorplates to meet occupants’ desires for access to daylight, views and operable windows. The challenge is how to balance these desires with the thermal penalties typically associated with larger building envelopes. Three local experts will discuss the effects of higher performing envelopes on energy performance and user comfort.

Extra Credit Lunch and Learn After Facades+AM

Lunch will be served and 4 CEU credits will be provided. Directly follows the Facades+AM morning forum.

1. Understanding Perimeter Fire Barrier Systems in the Modern Age: Maintaining Integrity in Today’s Complex Designs

Presenter: Eric Lacroix, STI Firestop

Fully understanding the role and value of perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever changing and complex designs cannot be overstated. Small panel sizes, flush sill heights, curved and angled designs, exposed anchors, and steel backpan designs have made a difficult situation even more critical. As the industry changes almost on a monthly basis, understanding how to maintain the integrity of a non-rated curtain wall system for up to 4 hours is critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements during construction.Key topics covering codes, new ASTM testing requirements, the growing concern for “connection protection”, and an in depth review of the 4 most common issues during construction will be discussed in detail incorporating PowerPoint & video.

Learning Objectives

Understanding new code requirements

Importance of UL testing for perimeter fire barrier systems

Designing for success

Key design points on standard aluminum frame designs

Understanding the complexity of unitized backpan designs

2. Prefabricated Ornamental Railings

Presenter: Kevin Harris, AGS Stainless

This course will discuss the overall advantages of choosing a custom-fabricated railing system built off-site compared to off-the-shelf products or locally fabricated railings. In addition to looking at the practical considerations of how different fabrication choices affect project time and budget, this course also identifies some ways to address health, safety, and building occupant welfare.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the advantages of a prefabricated custom railing system and an all stainless steel railing system.
  • Compare and contrast the railing system materials used for posts, top rails, and infill.
  • Describe common challenges with locally fabricated metal rail systems.
  • Evaluate how stainless steel railing systems meet health, safety, and welfare requirements.

3. Design & Specification of ACM / MCM in Today’s Architecture

Presenter: Dave Kearney, ALPOLIC Materials

This presentation will cover a wide range of timely topics important to the Architect, Designer, and Specifier of contemporary interior and exterior metal panels. It will provide an overview of aluminum and metal composite materials as well address ACM’s attributes, basic design guidelines, attachment systems, specifications, and cost considerations.
