  • Sustainable Curb Appeal

    The materials we use have a big impact on the environment, our communities and our health. To select materials wisely, we have to know what's in them and what effects they have before, during and after their use. This course will focus on the key drivers in the market on material health and disclosure, types or reporting tools and what the differences are between them.

  • NFPA 285- Facades & Insulation

    The demand for high performance, resilient, healthy, energy efficient buildings has changed building envelope designs that incorporate increased amounts of combustible material in cladding, insulation and water-resistive barriers (WRBs). Fire codes have become integral with updates to the International Building Code (IBC). Building science has focused on the 'envelope' in response to the movement of air, water vapor and thermal conditions. Understanding how to DELIVER high-performance, code compliant buildings can be complex and confusing.

  • Fire Performance of Metal-faced Sandwich Panel Systems

    This presentation will provide a holistic view of the fundamental difference between MCM, ACM, and Insulated Metal Panels. The goal is to understand how performance needs to be based on building types play a key role in selecting the appropriate Insulated Panel system. We will take a deep dive into fire testing to highlight the different requirements between the FM and ASTM standards. In addition, this portion will cover NFPA Standards and NBCC/OBC along with IBC. The last portion of the session will focus on real fire case studies highlighting a number of different building types from across the globe.

  • Cold Storage & Controlled Environment Solutions Using Insulated Metal Panels

    This course is an overview of the advantages and design considerations, of utilizing insulated metal panels as part of a high performance building envelope strategy for cold storage projects and those in which a temperature controlled environment is vital. In addition to providing superior thermal performance and air tightness, insulated metal panels can accelerate speed of build and allow for greater design flexibility. As well, Insulated metal doors can play a huge role in the success of your project; this course examines the benefits associated with both insulated metal panels and various types of insulated doors.

  • Designing with Architectural Metal Panels

    Our learning objectives for this course all surround the core value & concepts of metal panel. We briefly Identify market sectors for architectural insulated metal panels. Understand the thermal performance advantages of insulated panels along with the basics of panel installation including wall framing requirements. Discuss how IMPs perform the necessary envelope control functions through a single component systems while accelerate speed of build. This course will also describe the aesthetics, design flexibility and integrated accessories available with architectural insulated metal panels.

  • High Performance Rainscreen Design with Insulated Panels

    The purpose of this session will focus on what an engineered façade system should provide. Project teams are seeking a complete single-source system from the studs to exterior finish. We will discuss types of testing and approvals Façade systems offer to meet national and international building codes such as FM, NFPA, and others. Further discussion will be on performance warranties for leakage, system integrity, material performance similar to a roofing warranty. From the designer’s role, where you place the insulation and how do you attach the cladding can be the most critical decision when working with a building façade. We will explore both questions from a building science perspective to give clarity and certainty this is done properly.
