Building the Perfect Envelope with Insulated Metal Panels

Understanding building physics is critical to proper building envelope design. This course takes a relatively complex subject and reduces it to a level that teaches practical concepts for the building designer. This course will examine how various cladding systems perform across different climate zones and applications. Basic concepts including environmental control layers and hygrothermal loads are reviewed. Emphasis is placed on the concept of the “Perfect/Universal Wall”, and how utilizing the proper sequence of wall components can greatly simplify wall design in all climate zones. Insulated metal panels (IMPs) are a unique form of the “Perfect/Universal Wall”, and we will investigate how they perform the same functions as multi-component systems, simplifying wall system design and installation.

Building Sustainability With Fiber Cement Cladding

Cladding protects the building envelope and building occupants from the weather, while also defining the aesthetic of the building. A challenge for specifiers is to choose cladding that is environmentally sensitive over their entire lifespans. Such goals not only require a sustainable product but one that also has the flexibility to function in a broad range of climate zones as well as offer expansive design options. This course explores the ways in which fiber cement cladding is able to fulfill these demands for commercial and residential buildings throughout various climate zones.
