PRESENTED BY

Facades+ Northern Enclosure: Expert Takes From the Great Lakes, hosted by The Architect’s Newspaper with our co-chair Snow Kreilich, is a one-day event filled with tailor-made presentations and robust dialogue on high-level detailing of all things building skin. We invited leading specialists to present their most innovative projects with a regional flair. Throughout the day, you can expect to hear about the latest facades in construction and the innovative cladding techniques at play in the Great Lakes. Considering the demanding thermal needs that the northern seasons require, the program will go beyond architectural design and explore the many variables that are relevant to improved performance standards and architectural design even beyond the region.

Meeting technical challenges in preserving Landmarked facades, two firms create respectful but purposefully non-contextual, glittering glass updates to an 1898 sugar factory and 1929's historic Tammany Hall. an attractive alternative to new construction in terms of sustainability and a circular economy. while creating dialogue between NYC Landmarks and contemporary architecture Relationship of new architeture to the existing architecture and materials.

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
  • Understand the development of the IBC and State building codes in 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

This presentation will focus on the need for security glazing to protect people and property from human attacks and severe weather. Laminated glass can provide intrusion resistance, as well as protection from flying glass that occurs after a bomb blast. Bullet resistant laminates are designed specifically to stop bullet penetration and fragmentation.  Industry standards for testing and specifying security glazing will be reviewed, including standards for physical attack, bomb blast, ballistics and wind-borne debris protection.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize the growing concern for terrorist attacks, including shootings in schools.
  • Understand how laminated glass provides intrusion, blast, ballistics, and wind-borne debris protection.
  • Identify test standards and requirements for security applications.
  • Identify architectural applications where security glazing is required, including courthouses and embassies.
