Discover the design principles, performance, and material selection in contemporary building envelopes.

The webinar recording, featuring practical project examples throughout, will:
  • Highlight the differences between primary structural engineering practice and facade engineering
  • Discuss design workflows, design strategies, envelope performance and procurement which might influence aspects of structural design of building envelope
  • Introduce some typical materials (glass, metal alloys, ceramics, stone, precast etc.) followed by discussion and guidance
  • Focus on future materials and new trends in contemporary building envelopes, considering climate emergency, digital design and manufacturing advances
 

Learning outcomes

Gain an understanding of:
  • design principles, performance criteria with references to relevant guidance
  • material palette used in contemporary facades
  • structural principles and behaviour of façade systems and components
 

Intended for

Structural Engineers and designers looking to broaden their expertise
