Webinar: Prefabricated Concrete Façade System Connections

Webinar: Prefabricated Concrete Façade System Connections
In a recent study by FMI, architects and owners ranked exterior walls as the most complex component of a building to work with; citing water intrusion, trade coordination, code compliance and cost as their primary concerns.  Prefabricated concrete building façade systems can help ease the burden of building envelope design.  Understanding how to connect these primary barrier systems to a building’s structure can give insights into the benefits of this building systems approach.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Definitions and diagrams of standard connections for prefabricated façade systems including traditional Architectural Precast, GFRC and Thin-Shell systems  Provides tools for quantifying the performance of buildings in natural hazards along the dimensions of safety, repair costs, and recovery time.
  2. How to provide clients with benefit-cost and return-on-investment analytics to promote the selection of resilient structural systems and materials.
  3. Aesthetic and resilience considerations
