WE ARE LIVE IN
6 AIA HSW CEUs
We are back in person!
Facades+, hosted by The Architect’s Newspaper, is an event filled with tailor-made presentations and robust dialogue on high-level detailing of all things building skin. We invited leading architects, engineers, and enclosure specialists to present their most innovative projects throughout the region and across the world. Throughout the day, you can expect to hear about the latest facades recently finished or under construction and the innovative techniques at play. From climate-responsive facades to the future of regional building, Facades+Seattle offers a great way to learn and connect with fellow AEC professionals.

Pick 1 of 3 Afternoon Workshops
WORKSHOP A: Methods + Materials
With recent changes to local energy codes and incentives from several municipalities the gap between passive house construction and energy code compliance is narrowing and Passive House uptake across the country is growing exponentially. In this workshop participants will learn what the hands on challenges of going passive house are for mid-rise and high-rise multifamily projects. We will use real world case studies to break down the specific components and challenges, show you how the industry is addressing them, and how you can gain the knowledge you need to get your next project to Passive House. Bring your own projects and challenges and let’s roll up our sleeves together!

Both the Washington State Energy Code and the Seattle Energy Code have introduced restrictions on UA trade off limiting this to 20% and 10% of the baseline building respectively. Learn how to use the clear field values in the Building Envelope Thermal Bridging Guide to accurately account for thermal bridging in UA calculations. The latest publication of the Building Envelope Thermal Bridging Guide is by far one of the most complete industry reference for building enclosure U-factors. Develop an understanding on the type of building typologies that may struggle to meet this new requirement and how parametric envelope studies can help identify potential compliance path including leveraging new enclosure technologies. Explore the process for incorporating the impact of linear transmittance at key enclosure interfaces to further dial in the performance of enclosure on projects pursuing the Target Performance Path, Passive House, Living Building or net zero performance.
- Discuss how and where thermal bridges occur and how they can be mitigated.
- Describe the impacts of thermal bridging and effective R-values on building energy use.
- Identify a combination of passive design strategies (including thermal bridging reduction) and design process strategies (such as parametric energy modelling) as part of integrated design that can lead to high performance low energy and low carbon buildings.
- Summarize available design resources to apply the above concepts to design higher performance buildings.
