Northern Enclosure

Expert Takes
from the
Great Lakes

July 15, 2021


This July The Architect's Newspaper will present Facades+ Southeast. The conference, our first of the summer, is grounded in the city of Atlanta, and is co-chaired by HKS Director of Commercial, Atlanta, Shelby Morris. Although the Peach State will feature prominently within the program, the conference’s three panels will be relevant for the entire Southeast, and beyond. The topics respond to architecture’s increasing responsibility to address environmental and cladding conditions, all while maintaining aesthetic standards for both the client and general public. In particular, the panels will hone in on construction related to the exponentially expanding tech scene in Atlanta, innovative multi-material enclosures, and operable windows for facades. Attendees will be provided the opportunity to converse directly with the panelists throughout the day.

This course is designed to eliminate the confusion associated with the basics of perimeter fire containment systems. Fully understanding the role and value of tested perimeter fire barrier systems in today’s ever-changing and complex designs cannot be overstated and understanding the unique challenges of these designs present are critical in the design phase to eliminate costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements prior to construction.

Learning Objectives
  • Fully understand the basics of curtain walls and how they perform in a fire
  • North America regarding the requirements for perimeter fire barrier systems
  • Fully understand the impact of the ASTM E 2307 test standard on actual test that have been run. This easily documents the impact and severity of the new code requirement.
  • Design for success: Understanding the basics of all non backpan perimeter fire containment tested system
  • To make understanding of curtain wall basics fun and easily understood
