The Amherst Science Center is a recent example of Payette's groundbreaking work in the field of high-performance facade design with an emphasis on sustainability. This panel will discuss Payette's first steps in approaching such projects, the tools at their disposal, and the key role collaborators such as Integral Group have in the successful design and completion of COTE-awarded projects. The presentation will be followed by a moderated discussion and an audience Q & A.
The panel, led by frequent collaborators Studio NYL and Sasaki, will be a deep-dive into the problem of thermal bridging. The panelists will present a particular thermal diagram with a run-through of how the detail is typically solved. The run-through of the detail will be followed by an review and analysis, and then extrapolated to other details and conditions.
