Designing for Lasting Impact-The Science Behind Better Building Enclosures

The seminar will discuss building science fundamentals, fire safety including the Wildland-Urban Interface and NFPA 285, the effective performance of roof systems, as well as a project highlight on the Chase Center!

During the course of the day, Graham Finch (RDH) will delve into the science behind building enclosures, discuss key building science principles and look at design considerations and strategies when building conventional, mid-rise, tall wood, and modular buildings.

Stephen Quarles (University of California) will discuss the vulnerabilities of buildings in wildfire prone areas and discuss strategies on improving the chance of buildings surviving wild fires, while Keith Nelson (ECS) will discuss the importance of fire safety design as it relates to the building enclosure, specifically NFPA 285 requirements and compliant designs.

During lunchtime, Antoine Habellion (ROCKWOOL) will discuss the effective performance of roof systems with a focus on using stone wool insulation as a core component of the design.

At the end of the day, Annie Lo and Sanjeev Tankha (Walter P. Moore), will discuss the design challenges and their experiences in working on the Chase Center as the building envelope consultants for the project.

A tour of the Chase Center will be held at the end of the seminar!
