The IIBEC Gulf Coast Chapter is pleased to announce our fifth meeting of 2021. The meeting will include two presentations. Additionally, an outlook of the chapter business going into Q4 of 2021 will be discussed.
Amy Peevey PE, REWC, RRO (Vidaris, Inc.), will present on Curtain Wall Preconstruction Laboratory Mock-up Testing
Curtain wall preconstruction laboratory mock-up testing is often omitted or inappropriately utilized for many new construction projects. This presentation will assist designers, owners/developers, and contractors with understanding preconstruction curtain wall laboratory mock-up testing. Specifically, the presentation will focus on how to 1) determine when laboratory testing should be incorporated into a project, 2) evaluate the qualifications and requirements for the testing facility, 3) develop an appropriate testing scope, and 4) incorporate requirements determined from the laboratory mock-up test into the project construction. To supplement the topics presented, case studies will be utilized based on the author’s experience.
Cindy McDonald (Metal-Span) will present on Design Considerations When Using Insulated Metal Roof Panels.
This course focuses on design considerations when using insulated metal roof panels. Panel characteristics, paint finishes and roof geometry options are reviewed. Support structure requirements (ex: purlins, joists, decking) including steel alignment/tolerances, panel spans and roof diaphragm considerations are studied. Functional aspects including environmental control layers (air, vapor, water and thermal) are examined. A full color animated video provides guidance on the step by step process of how IMP roofs are installed. Code compliance including air/water, thermal, fire safety and wind uplift is addressed. The program concludes with product and installation warranties, including paint, corrosion and weather tightness.
Participants will receive two IIBEC-CEU for attending.
Please register and select in-person or virtual attendance so appropriate accommodations can be made for attendees. Streaming Video for those who cannot join in person.
Boxed lunches will be provided for in-person attendees.
Amy Peevey PE, REWC, RRO (Vidaris, Inc.) – Ms. Peevey is a building enclosure engineer with over 20 years of experience in the new design, investigation/evaluation, and restoration of building envelope systems. She received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Texas at Austin and is a registered professional engineer in several states. She has spent a majority of her career performing forensic investigations and developing new designs, as well as providing expert litigation support for below-grade and plaza waterproofing, cladding, fenestration, and roofing systems, as well as their structural components. Her forensic engineering background has enabled her to understand the performance of building enclosures and causes for material, system, and integration related performance failures, as well as the need to coordinate the building exterior with the other building systems (MEP, structural, civil, etc.), which in turn provides a high level of technical insight into new building envelope design. Her new design experience has reinforced her technical knowledge and grown her understanding of new technology and innovation in materials, components, trends, construction methods, etc. as it applies to both new construction and restoration of building envelopes. Ms. Peevey is a seasoned presenter and published member of several technical trade associations and active contributor to the building envelope community.
