Winter Education Seminar

Successful Building Enclosures - Coordination is Key | Tuesday January 23rd, 2018 4:00PM @ Chapman's HQ

Presented by: Matthew C. Carlton, AIA, LEED AP, Director of Building Enclosure Design, Riverview Design Consulting, and Gil Castonguay, BECxP, LEED AP, CEI, Chief Operating Officer, R. J. Kenney Associates, Inc.

High performance buildings are realized, in part, through the collaboration between Owner, Contractor, Architect and Consultants. Since building enclosures account for 85% of construction related insurance claims and 77% of delays, special attention and planning should be devoted to minimizing risk of failure early in the design. The exterior envelope and interior building systems must work in tandem to provide energy efficiency, durability, and occupant comfort. Thus, similar levels of oversight must be provided throughout the design and construction phases so they are equally designed and coordinated between disciplines.

This presentation will provide lessons-learned guidance, gleaned from third party failure investigations, for a cost effective and efficient building enclosure design and construction process. We will examine various issues relating to roofing, curtain-wall and below grade waterproofing as well as necessary field testing and options for Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) required to minimize problems before they become widespread.

This seminar is free to attend, but space is limited
