Explore transformative projects in Deep Ellum. Scott Lowe of 5G Collaborative will be discussing The Stack and Keith Hanspard of ANDRES will share the details of the Pittman Hotel. The presentations will look into differing strategies of transforming historical buildings for new uses in a neighborhood whose growth is the focus of much attention in Dallas. Adaptive Reuse and Repositioning are crucial methods for reducing the energy footprint of buildings while creating new identities by leveraging new facade design while improving performance, comfort, and enjoyment.

Accompanying Pei Cobb Freed & Partners’ 1986 design, Page Think’s Fountain Place brings an all-glass facade to an iconic Dallas plaza. With high performance glass, matched to the original color of the Fountain Place towers, Page’s design brings contemporary performance standards to Dallas’ Downtown. This discussion-based roundtable will dive into the importance to project management and collaborative work early in the design process to deliver a complex, high performing facade.

Workshop A:
Methods + Materials PRESENTED BY

1:30 - 2:30 PM

Credit type: 1.0 AIA HSW
Provider: STI Firestop

This course provides an update on the advancements in perimeter fire containment systems for galvanized backpan assemblies. The value of understanding the performance of galvanized backpan assemblies in today’s ever changing complex designs cannot be overstated. By identifying the unique challenges that these assemblies present in the design phase, you can eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.

Learning Objectives

  • Define the role and value of perimeter fire containment systems in today’s ever changing and  complex galvanized backpan assembly designs.
  • Identify the code requirements for perimeter fire protection.
  • Describe how galvanized backpan assemblies perform per ASTM E 2307 testing and the importance of independent third-party testing for perimeter fire containment systems.
  • Recognize the complexity of aluminum framed galvanized backpan designs and how to address them

Over the past 120+ years of commercial construction history, there have been numerous changes to building design; construction methods and occupant needs that have impacted the design of Architectural Aluminum Framing Systems. Architectural Aluminum Framing started 100+ years back with the introduction of aluminum storefront frames. More recently we have seen a growth in the high-rise construction in most urban areas. This has driven the growth of a newer system called “Window Wall”. A proper understanding of the benefits and options available with Window Wall will reveal this to be a great solution to your next high-rise and multifamily construction project.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the characteristics and attributes of Window Wall systems; describe similarities and differences between Window Wall and Storefront and Curtain Wall systems
  • Understand the installation and fabrication options available with various Window Wall Systems
  • Identify other Architectural Aluminum Framing Products that can be integrated into Window Wall Systems and how this is accomplished
  • Understand the advantages and benefits of selecting a Window Wall System through a review of Window Wall Case Studies

1:30 - 4:45 PM

Frustrated by loops of rework and wasted time, Perkins & Will envisioned a more collaborative and dynamic feasibility review process for its fabrication and construction partners. A process that would allow more design time and speed up decision. Working with like minded leaders at fabrication partner at Zahner, the two firms invented a shared workspace and feasibility model that produces higher design fidelity, shorter delivery schedules, and more joyful clients and communities. Learn more about this process and how it can be adapted for your work and how process improvements like this can be implemented between many partners for faster, better collaborations.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the difficulties and roadblocks to faster, higher fidelity collaboration between design, fabrication, and construction.
  • Review a collaboration process between two or more firms using this model
  • Learn how Apply process improvements to your own firms

1:30 - 4:45 PM

Projects within the Sports, Entertainment and Aviation sectors are growing in budget, scale and complexity with novel design visions that aim to deliver unparalleled user experiences. Simultaneously, the teams needed to implement these heroic endeavors are becoming increasingly large and diverse. Delivering success on these projects requires new modes of collaboration, and acceptance of responsibility and risk not demanded of smaller and less ambitious projects. Through the lens of some of the most recent and iconic projects in these sectors, workshop attendees will get insight into how the enclosures of these complex projects are designed and realized.
