Daylighting and Sustainable Design

(1) AIA/CES Learning Unit – Contact Hour – Health/Safety/Welfare

Topics discussed include the origins of translucent daylighting with the structural sandwich panel, considerations in design, enhancement of daylighting techniques, real energy conservation, the eight systems and opportunities offered in contrast, design, form and aesthetics. The benefits of diffused natural daylighting on performance, health, productivity, safety and sustainable design are emphasized. Specialty performance systems including explosion venting, blast resistant, hurricane impact and OSHA fall-through protection are included.

LEED Credits With Translucent Daylighting

(1) AIA/CES Learning Unit – Contact Hour – Health/Safety/Welfare
(1) GBCI CE Hour for LEED AP BD+C

Using various forms of translucent daylighting to earn LEED credits and/or assist in the implementation of green or sustainable design. Topics discussed include the origins of translucent daylighting techniques, energy conservation and opportunities offered in contrast, design, form and aesthetics. Also included are discussions surrounding recycled content, heat island effect and light pollution reduction.

Sustainable Design Using Highly Insulated Diffused Natural Daylight

(1) AIA/CES Learning Unit – Contact Hour – Health/Safety/Welfare

Objectives of this course will be to have the participants leave with the ability to understand the health, safety, productivity, protection and aesthetic benefits of Natural daylighting in occupied spaces. The benefits to the occupants of a space with diffused sunlight (no glare) instead of direct sunlight (glare). Understanding Natural Daylight improves occupant’s attendance productivity and health. Also the benefits of designing with low solar heat gain to lower the energy costs of cooling and high insulation properties benefiting the efficiency of heating of the building. There will also be explanation about providing safety of occupants egressing a building during a fire. Attendees will also learn about safety of providing a daylighting material, which can meet OSHA fall through, windborne debris, blast resistance and explosion venting protection. *This course is presented on behalf of Kalwall’s strategic partner Structures Unlimited, Inc.
