EARN: 1 AIA LU/HSW; 0.1 IACET CEU; 1 PDHThis course describes roof system concepts vital to “mission critical” building design. Today’s world is highly technology reliant. High value research that cannot be interrupted is conducted daily in laboratories. Communication is vital in national security, education and business and financial markets. Financial records, medical information, archival resources, and much more must be accessible through connectivity. The vital importance of these functions has given rise to “mission critical” building design. This course discusses the performance properties of cellular glass insulation ideal for these facilities as well as example assemblies to help achieve redundancy and durability.
- Discuss the composition of cellular glass insulation and its intrinsic value in building applications.
- Avoid value-engineering that would lead to energy loss, moisture ingress, and other modes of roof failure.
- Identify how cellular glass integrated into unique systems reinforces the strategy of durable design in mission critical facilities.
- Validate roof assemblies that meet fire and structural integrity requirements for the building application.
