This program will explore the challenges in designing contemporary building envelopes. Potential conflicts in simultaneous objectives of achieving aesthetics, energy efficiency, sustainability, longevity, and occupant health and safety will be discussed. In addition, how best to assess the energy efficiency of alternative window/window wall configurations will be reviewed. Advances in thermal barrier materials and extrusion profile design – in conjunction with energy efficient glazing – will be shown, illustrating how these systems can provide window and curtain wall designs that meet or exceed more demanding energy codes while providing the daylighting and minimal sight lines that users and designers desire.

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to:

  • Identify current challenges in designing high performance building envelopes
  • Assess alternative framing materials
  • Understand how contemporary thermal management technologies can meet increasingly demanding energy codes
  • Utilize aluminum-extrusion-based windows and curtain wall to meet often conflicting project requirements
