The Standing Seam Metal Roof Systems presentation delivers an informative comparison between metal roofing materials and alternative roofing materials. It discusses the availability of metal in a variety of finishes and the economic and environmental advantages of metal. You will learn about the different types of standing seam metal roofing panels along with their various capabilities and design parameters.
This presentation discusses how various applications are ideal for retrofitting projects and how retrofit can be utilized for existing and even new construction. Retrofitting a building offers key benefits, including long-term performance, minimal maintenance expenses, improved energy efficiency, energy savings and beautified aesthetics.
A Review of Metal Panel Warranties provides an understanding of metal roof warranties and the variances of warranties throughout the industry. This presentation shows the roles of accountability and responsibility in warranties for the architect, contractor and manufacturer.
Insulated Metal Wall and Roof Panels for Sustainability and Energy Efficiency defines insulated metal wall and roof panels (IMPs) in terms of their material, finish and construction life cycle, and how they are designed with features and benefits to enhance building performance, conserve energy and contribute to the sustainable built environment and net-zero energy buildings.
In Metal Roofing – The Devil is in the Details, you will learn that designing a roofing system for long-term performance requires long-term thinking about the details incorporated in a metal roof system. This presentation provides information regarding proper design to prevent possible infiltration from the roof system into the building. It also works as a guide when designing a roof to allow for proper water runoff.
Insulated metal panels (IMPs) present architects with opportunities to create pleasing designs while still helping building owners to meet their energy-efficiency goals. The combination of aesthetics and performance can qualify for tax credits as well as credits with green building rating systems.
A look at building modeling and its uses from design to completion of a geometrically complex project. The webinar will cover: design, construction documents, building systems coordination and fabrication, 3D shop drawings, and layout of complex geometries for onsite metal stud fabrication. The project is the new Space Shuttle Atlantis attraction at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, home to the last space shuttle to fly in space.
A metal roof offers numerous advantages in terms of energy conservation, sustainability, cost and low maintenance. Solar energy offers facilities an opportunity to further lower energy costs, and even become net-zero or net-positive. But when using a roof to generate solar energy, many installers turn to metal as the only option. This webinar educates architects, owners, facility managers and contractors regarding the benefits that can be achieved when pairing a solar system with a metal roof—and answers why metal is the only solar-ready roof.
This presentation will offer architects and designers a look at the difference in breathability versus tightness and why understanding the difference in each phenomenon is important to designing a sustainable building envelope.
