How does the façade respond to the movements of your structure? Are different cladding types more forgiving of structural movements? What will the façade contractor do with your movement and tolerance report?

An introduction to façades including precast concrete panels, and stick and unitised curtain walling.

This webinar explores:

  • How façade types respond to structural movements
  • Their relative ability to accommodate structural movements
  • How façade aspect ratios impact on their ability to accommodate movements Structural Movements and Tolerances reports - their importance relative to performance-based procurement routes
  • Communication of movement information between parties involved in construction to aid collaborative working

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn to understand and explain how different façade systems accommodate structural movements
  • Understand what specialist façade contractors will do with movement and tolerance information
  • Learn to explain how structural design decisions impact on façade design choices

Suitable for:

  • Structural engineers involved in the design of high rise buildings
  • Structural engineers wishing to broaden their focus and influence across traditional scope boundaries
  • Façade practitioners wanting to refresh their knowledge and review emerging communication methods
