May qualify for learning hours through most Canadian architectural associations.
Richard Wilson: Richard is an architectural consultant on solar control solutions and will use his extensive experience to present several unique projects and their solutions for daylighting control.
Lawrence Speck: Lawrence is the senior principal at Austin-based architecture and engineering firm Page, will present his work on the Brain Performance Institute in Dallas. The project used architecture as a tool to meet the institute’s goals, including spaces where clients meet with clinicians that take advantage of daylight, either admitting it or blocking it, as treatment demands.
This webinar will examine the specific daylighting solutions used to provide glare control and solar heat gain reductions on projects where standard, off-the-shelf solutions were not a desired option.
- Discuss the benefits of providing glare control and solar heat gain reduction for occupant visual and thermal comfort
- Describe how the Brain Performance Institute implemented natural lighting techniques to meet the diverse needs of occupants and visitors
- Identify factors that contribute to the need for a project-specific solar control solution.
- Explain strategies to make an informed selection for solar control solutions.
