Are you interested in learning about the structural performance of a building facade? Attend AN‘s facades+ PERFORMANCE Conference in San Francisco on 7/12 and meet James Parker of Simpson Gumpertz & Heger and John Tawresey of KPFF Consulting Engineers. The pair will lead a half-day Dialog Workshop titled “The Structure of Facades – Criteria, Design Concepts and Performance.”
When we think about the performance criteria of a high-performance building envelope often the primary factors that first come to mind are things like water resistance, energy savings, aesthetics, and longevity. In this workshop Parker and Tawresey will explore the sometimes-overlooked but very essential aspect of building a modern façade: structural performance. The pair will discuss the building codes, industry standards, and performance criteria that must be met in order to effectively construct a successful modern high-performance façade.
Register for James Parker and John Tawresey’s workshop and work closely with, learn from, and have your questions answered by two renowned and highly experienced structural engineers in an intimate classroom setting. An opportunity like this one doesn’t come around often! Students will also earn 4 LU AIA CE credits for participating in this valuable workshop experience.
