CHICAGO MORNING SEMINAR: Custom Facade System Design
Designing custom glazing systems – such as structural glass walls or unitized curtain walls – is a complex task that varies widely from project to project depending on architectural goals and constraints. In this presentation, we will explore the building enclosure design process for custom glazed curtain walls from start to finish.
ABOUT THE MARCH SEMINAR
Custom Facade System Design
Presented by Scott N. Bondi, Ph.D., P.E.
Designing custom glazing systems – such as structural glass walls or unitized curtain walls – is a complex task that varies widely from project to project, often depending on architectural goals and constraints. As with standard systems, designers often first consider performance criteria such as wind loads, wind-driven rain resistance, and thermal performance. In each case, there are fabrication limits and installation constraints, which can affect allowable system types. In this presentation, we will examine a case study to explore the process of building enclosure design for custom glazed curtain walls from start to finish, including considerations for architectural, enclosure engineering, and energy impacts.
After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
Understand the factors that are important to consider in designing a glazed system.
Identify the analytical steps required for designing a custom glazed system.
Recognize the important aspects of documenting the design of custom glazing systems.
Identify key conditions in a custom glazing system that need detailed documentation and analysis.
Participants will earn 1.5 AIA/CES Learning Units (LU/HSW) for their attendance.
