Prefabricated Concrete Façade Systems Connections
AIA 1.0 LU/HSW
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.
In this webinar, the participant will learn about:
• Definitions and diagrams of standard connections for prefabricated concrete facade systems including traditional Architectural Precast, GFRC and Thin-Shell systems
• Design for pre-welds and embeds
• Aesthetic and resilience considerations
